       Mix together the butter, cream cheese, egg yolk and orange juice. Add
   dry cake mix; stir in orange zest, raisins, walnuts and basil. Chill dough.
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees; butter cookie sheets. Roll chilled dough into
   1/2-inch balls and place on cookie sheets.  Flatten each ball with a fork.
   Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.  For a bit of artistry, attach a small paper or
   silk leaf using a dab of confectioner’s sugar icing. Makes 6 to 7 dozen.

   and orange juice.
