Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, orange peel and vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Divide dough in half. Shape into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.

Immediately decorate as desired with sprinkles. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 3 dozen.
