Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk, orange peel and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with 2-1/2-in. cookie cutters dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
