  • 1/4 c Butter; softened
  • 1 1/2 c Sugar
  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 ts Orange extract
  • 4 c All-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 ts Baking powder

Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed of an
electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add flavorings, and beat until blended.

Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with
milk. Mix just until blended after each addition. Divide dough into 4
portions; wrap each portion in plastic wrap. Chill at least 2 hours.

Work with one portion of dough at a time, and store remainder in
refrigerator. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a well-floured surface.
Cut with a 2-1/2 inch shaped cookie cutter, and place on greased cookie
sheets. Decorate with sugar, if desired. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes
or until edges brown. Cool. Yields 5 dozen. Mrs. Curtis H. Ward, Auburn,
