Baby Spit Cookies
2/3 cup shortening
3/4 c sugar
2 tsp orange peel, dried & finely minced. (I use a zester and let the shreds dry - I have also
made these without drying the peel)
2 tsp vanilla
4 tsp milk
2 c flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Cream 2/3 shortening, sugar, orange peel, & vanilla. Cream well.
Add egg and milk. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir together and add flour, baking powder, & salt.
Chill minimum of 1 hour. Roll out on 1/4 cup powdered sugar 1/8 inch thick. Bake at 350 for
8 minutes until very lightly browned.
