DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400^F.
  • In a large bowl, beat shortening and butter until fluffy.
  • Add sugar a little bit at a time.
  • Add egg yolks, orange juice, and peel.
  • Stir in flour with spatula.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 3/4". Cut out 2 1/2" circles and place them on a greased baking sheet. Roll the dough scraps and continue to roll until all the dough is used.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Be careful not to overcook them--they are done when they are barely starting to tan.
  • Transfer to a rack to cool.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar through a fine sieve.
