Orange Crispies

1 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
1 large egg
1-1/2 teaspoons orange extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Beat shortening and sugar together at low speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and orange extract. Gradually add flour and salt, beating dough until light and fluffy after each addition. Form balls from rounded teaspoonfuls, roll in sugar and place 2 inches apart, onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 8 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on wire racks.
Makes about 5 dozen.
