    Elly in Canada's Note:

    I love anything with a citrus flavour, these squares are very nice with an orange flavoured shortbread base topped with a chewy orange and nut topping. The original recipe is entered, I have used other nuts - walnuts, pecans, macadamias. Source: Homemakers Magazine

      I used brazil nuts which I tried my best to slice real thin. These squares are so good, just like orange thick glazed shortbread cookies. Cant imagine them with any other nut now either. Cant eat just one, great with a hot cup of tea.
