Orange tea cookies use the zest of one orange to give them their orange flavor.  Replace the orange zest with lemon or lime zest for a different taste.

Lemon zest may be used in place of orange zest.

1/2 cup butter or shortening

1/2 cup sugar

yolk of 1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/3 tsp salt

rind of 1 orange

Add in 1 cup of flour

Incorporate flour into wet ingredients just until mixed.  You should have a thick batter.

Roll batter into balls and place on a cookie sheet one inch apart.  Flatten balls with a fork.  Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.
