Although Tortas de Aceite were first made in Sevilla, they’ve become one of the most beloved cookies in all of Spain. Sevilla is a city where the streets are literally lined with orange trees, so adding Seville orange flavor to the classic torta makes complete sense. The delicate crisps, akin to a flaky, lightly sweet pie crust, get their crispiness from the extra virgin olive oil in their dough. A steaming cup of coffee and a plate of these tortas will make you long for the simple, satisfying breakfasts of Sevilla!

These delightful cookies were first made in the early 1900s, using flour and local olive oil with a dusting of sugar and anise. Unwrap their wax paper packaging, and inside lies a thin, crispy cookie, all made by hand.

Our tortas are seasoned with local Seville oranges, adding a citrusy note to the familiar biscuit. You can serve these popular cookies at breakfast, or after lunch with an espresso. Sometimes, we bring out the flaky cookies as a light dessert for dinner!

    "I've had the cinnamon flavored tortas before but this was special -- the subtle orange flavor was a delightful twist. My only suggestion is that they don't overbake them as some had burnt-looking parts"
