The orange peel makes these crisp cookies extra special. The cookies freeze well, too.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well. Add grated peel and molasses and mix again. Stir together dry ingredients and add to butter mixture, stirring well. Wrap up dough and chill for several hours or overnight. Roll dough very thin and cut out with cookie cutters. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.
