DIRECTIONS

  • Thoroughly cream the SOFTENED butter and the sugar, orange extract, and vanilla.
  • NOTE: I prefer orange extract over the zest because I think it has a stronger flavor. Although zesting an orange is probably cheaper.
  • Add egg; beat until fluffy, stir in the milk.
  • sift the dry ingredients. (The flour, baking powder and salt.).
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and blend well.
  • Divide the dough in half.
  • Chill for 1 hour or overnight.
  • After an hour or the next day, on a floured surface, roll half of the dough to 1/8 inch thick. (keep the remaining dough chilled until you are ready to roll it.).
  • Cut into shapes and place them on a greased baking sheet.
  • at this point you can decorate them with candy, raisins, nuts and colored sugars if you want.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Cool slightly and remove them from the pan.
  • Enjoy!
