Orange Butter Thins

This recipe was such a hit! I think I ended up giving away all of them today. They were a lot easier than I thought to make. I will be making these more often.  
Orange Butter Thins
2/3 cup butter, room temperature
cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
teaspoons grated orange rind
    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.
The recipe says it makes about 4 dozen. I think mine
were a little big to make quite that many.
