"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/4 cup shortening 1 cu sugar 1 1/2 tsp grated orange peel 1 tsp vanilla 1 egg 3 Tbs milk 2 cups sifted flour 1 tsp salt 2 tsp cream of tartar Sugar for coating
Cream the butter, shortening and sugar. (I would use all butter.) Add orange peel and vanilla. Add the egg and milk. Sift the dry ingredients and add the the creamed mixture. Mix well. Roll into 1 inch balls and roll the balls in sugar. Arrange 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten gently with a small glass. Bake at 350ºF for 8 - 10 minutes or until very light golden brown. Makes 3 dozen.
