Brown sugar refrigerator cookies

Yield: 48 cookies

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Soft butter or margarine
1 cup C&H Golden Brown Sugar
1 Egg; unbeaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 teaspoons Grated orange rind
1¾ cup Sifted all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking powder

Beat together butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and orange rind. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder; sift into first mixture and mix well.

Chill dough, then shape into roll about 2-½" in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper or foil. Store in refrigerator or freezer. To bake, unwrap and cut in ⅛" slices; lay on greased cookie sheet, then use floured cookie cutters to cut slices into fancy shapes. (Gather up scraps of dough, press together and chill again.) Bake cookies at 400 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes. Makes 4 to 5 dozen crisp, "butterscotchy" cookies.
