Crispy Orange-Almond Cookies
"I like to serve these light crispy cookies with ice cream or sherbet. The recipe is a personal favorite because it came from a good friend."
In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Beat in egg, orange juice, peel and extract. Combine flour and baking soda; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in almonds. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
