Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine flour and cornmeal. Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and next 3 ingredients, beating until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until blended after each addition. Cover and chill dough 1 hour.
  2. 2. Shape dough into a 12-inch log using wax paper. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and chill 8 hours.
