teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

  1. In large bowl, beat butter with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy; add granulated sugar, beating until blended. Add egg, orange peel and vanilla; beat until blended. On low speed, beat in flour and salt until blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On cookie sheet, place balls 2 inches apart. Press thumb into center of each cookie to make indentation, but do not press all the way to the cookie sheet.
