The mildly floral, slightly exotic flavor of mace works perfectly in this simple shortbread that is flecked with citrus zest. Though we used tangerine, any citrus zest — orange, grapefruit, lemon, even lime — could be substituted.
You also could use a glass with an attractive pattern on the bottom to flatten the cookies, creating an imprint on the finished cookies.
