How about coating the skin of that holiday turkey, before roasting, with a wild mushroom & sage olive oil? Or sautéing some onions and carrots for the stuffing in a sweet garlic infused oil or maybe an earthy tuscan herb? Judy and I tried just about all of the flavors during the time we were there and the possibilities for creating new recipes and dressing up the old ones were endless.
The ever popular beef rib roast or the swoon-worthy filet mignon gets all dressed up for the holiday table by adding an Italian white truffle oil with it's earthy buttery flavor or making a balsamic pan sauce made with a thick dark chocolate vinegar and a splash of blood orange vinegar?. Sounds delish? it is!!!
Finally the sweeter side of the holiday. A simple vanilla bean ice cream can go to a new level when drizzled with a sweet but tart cherry balsamic vinegar and a crunchy shortbread cookie made with a Persian lime olive oil had our TV co-hosts in a trance!
All of these wonderful oils and vinegars are widely available on the internet.
Orange Olive Oil Shortbread Cookies With Italian Sea Salt
We just love cookies, but a cookie with olive oil? Yes! We try to only make them when we are having guests
over so we don't eat all of them ourselves. The richness of the olive oil as opposed to butter is great in a
shortbread cookie (we were skeptical at first!). They are wonderfully crunchy and
the sea salt is perfect paired with the sweet cookie. Enjoy!.
3 cups all-purpose flour
11⁄2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup Old World Olive Co. Extra Virgin
11⁄2 teaspoons sea salt
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
course sanding sugar for garnish
additional sea salt for garnish
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the 11⁄2 cups sugar and olive oil. Beat on low until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour and sea salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the olive oil.
Beat until combined (it will be crumbly).
Use your hands to roll the dough into a log that is 1-inch in diameter. Roll log in wax paper and
refrigerate for one hour.
Preheat oven to 350°. Slice the dough and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove and
place on rack.
