The recipe was prepared by food blogger Antonella Audino who prepared these shortbread-based cookies filled with apple chunks and a good dose of our intensely fresh-tasting Sicilian Red Orange marmalade, which will create balance between the delicate flavor of the apples and the strong flavor of the Red Oranges.

Sicilian blood orange marmalade is a delight for the palate, with its balanced sweetness and intense aroma of fresh oranges grown in one of the most famous regions in the world for the quality of its oranges. Made with natural ingredients and no preservatives, the jam is perfect for breakfast.
