If you like a thick soft sugar cookie these are for you. This makes a big batch and they reroll very nicely. Don't overbake to keep them soft. The orange peel in the dough is wonderful. Add a little zest to the icing to make them even better.

2 eggs
1 C. butter
2 C. Sugar
¾ tsp. Salt
1 C. sour cream
2 tsp. Soda
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 T. orange zest
6 C. flour
Cream the eggs, butter, sugar & salt. Add remaining ingredients. Roll thick. Bake 375 for 6-8 minutes. Don’t overbake.
