      My mother, of Welsh heritage, was fond of a mid-afternoon sip of tea,
   accompanied by light cookies. These were a favorite.
       In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add slightly beaten egg,
   mixing well. Stir in flour, salt and grated orange rind. Refrigerate dough
   for one half hour.
      Preheat oven to 375. Put a small walnut-size ball of batter on a lightly
   greased cookie sheet. Cover with a square of wax paper and press with the
   flat bottom of a glass until very flat and thin.
       Bake at 375 for 5 minutes. Cookies will be light brown when done.
   Remove from cookie sheet with a spatula and let cool on waxed paper. Yield:
   4 dozen. Margo H. Tyler
