Brown Sugar Refrigerator Cookies ( C & H ) Recipe


1/2 c Soft butter or margarine
1 c C&H Golden Brown Sugar
1 Egg; unbeaten
1 ts Vanilla
2 ts Grated orange rind
1 3/4 c Sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 ts Salt
1 ts 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 2-1/2" in diameter. Wrap in
waxed paper or foil. Store in refrigerator or freezer. To bake,
unwrap and cut in 1/8" 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.
