4 tablespoons butter, softened

1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar (powdered)

2 teaspoons fresh orange zest

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 egg whites

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Beat the butter, sugar, orange zest, vanilla extract, and salt on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 4 – 5 minutes. Add the egg whites, one at a time, to the butter. Gently fold in the flour and refrigerate for 45 minutes.

Preheat an oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Fill a pastry bag with the batter and pipe into 1/3-inch wide, 2 1/2-inch long cookies. Bake them for 10 minutes until they are light golden brown. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for seconds, and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
