Time for a cookie break!

Zesty Orange Sugar Cookies.
1 cup margarine, very soft, almost melted
1 cup sugarWhisk together well. Add
Zest of 1 large orange, prepped in blender with ¼ cup sugar
1 egg.
1 teaspoon vanilla.
Whisk well. Add
2 2/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder.
Mix well. Form into one-inch balls. Bake on ungreased sheet at 375* 12-15 minutes.

Tip for zest: Any time you have an orange: Just peel it with a sharp carrot peeler. Put the zest peeling in a food chopper or blender, with ¼ cup sugar, chop to desire bit sizes. It will begin to liquify the sugar. This can be stored in a zip-lock baggie in fridge or freezer for later use. Also works for lemon peel. One large orange or two small ones, makes enough for a batch of citrus-y cookies or pumpkin bread, etc.
