Marmalade Cookies

Bonnie Beck


I found this recipe years ago in an old cookbook.
We love Selville Marmalade & Meyer Lemon marmalade. The recipe fit right in with my holiday baking.
When I was a kid,we had a Selville Marmalade tree in our back yard. We didn't know what it was until years later. All we knew was the orange was bitter. Once we learned it made a great marmadaled there weren't many oranges left on the tree to rot.
Once the Safeway market up on the mountain had some for sale for 10 cents a pound. I didn't tell the manager he had a gold mine. When they didn't sell, he sold them to me for a 1 cent a pound.
