By PutoPinoy on Saturday, December 19, 2009 At Saturday, December 19, 2009

  • 2/3 c. shortening
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. grated orange peel
  • 2 c. sifted flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. milk

Thoroughly cream shortening and sugar. Add egg, beat until mixture is light and fluffy. Add vanilla, grated orange peel; mix thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients; stir into creamed mixture together with milk. Divide dough in half.

Chill 1 hour so it's easy to handle. Roll out one half, keeping the other chilled until you're ready to roll it. Roll dough 1/8 inch thick. Cut; put on greased cookie sheet; sprinkle lightly with sugar; bake in moderate oven at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.
