ORANGE SLIM GEMS
about 3 to 3½ dozen cookies, about 30 calories per cookie
Sift together the first 3 ingredients; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream butter or margarine thoroughly. Gradually add sugar or brown sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk or egg white, orange juice, and orange peel. Stir in dry ingredients, mixing well. Form dough into a long roll, about 1½ to 2 inches in diameter; cover with plastic wrap or wax paper and refrigerate until dough is firm, about 1 to 2 hours. With a sharp knife, cut dough into slices, each slice about 1/16 to 1/8-inch thick. Arrange cookie slices on baking sheets lightly coated with non-caloric vegetable cooking spray. Bake in a preheated hot oven (400 degrees F.) for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges of cookies are golden brown. Immediately remove cookies from baking sheets and transfer to wire racks to cool thoroughly. Store cookies in an airtight container in a cool dry area.
Note: May reduce butter or margarine to 2 tablespoons; add 2 tablespoons Smucker's Shortening & Oil Baking Replacement or unsweetened applesauce to cookie dough with the butter or margarine.
