 Ingredients List

  • 2/3 c Butter, room temperature
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/4 c Flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 4 ts Grated orange rind


My mother, of Welsh heritage, was fond of a mid-afternoon sip of tea,
accompanied by light cookies. These were a favorite.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add slightly beaten egg, mixing
well. Stir in flour, salt and grated orange rind. Refrigerate dough for one
half hour.

Preheat oven to 375ø. Put a small walnut-size ball of batter on a lightly
greased cookie sheet. Cover with a square of wax paper and press with the
flat bottom of a glass until very flat and thin.

Bake at 375ø for 5 minutes. Cookies will be light brown when done. Remove
from cookie sheet with a spatula and let cool on waxed paper.

Yield: 4 dozen. Margo H. Tyler, Silver Spring, MD
