Oh, I am so glad I finally found this recipe. I knew I had it. These are a light, chewy, crispy with a hint of orange flavor cookie and great to make anytime. I just made these tonight and they are so delicious.

I was browsing through my mother-in-laws family cookie cookbook when I found it. Anyway, it sounded yummy to me and so I copied it down to make.
I think the cookbook is called Pany Best Cookies. There was so many good recipes in there, I think I will ask to see it again this year and find another yummy cookie to make.

This recipe is from the Betty Crocker Cooky Book ~ from somewhere about 1960'ish.
These are very good cookies, and butter may be substituted for the shortening.
These have been a family favorite for a long time on my husbands side of the fmaily.
