orange rind. Mix well. Stir into dry ingredients. Form dough into a ball
shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight.

Preheat oven to 375. Roll out to 1/4-inch thick on floured surface. Cut

racks to cool.

Note: Dough will keep up to one week, refrigerated. Cookies can be stored
up to 3 weeks in cookie tins.

before cooking. Or ice them after they have cooled.
