Cream together the butter and sugar until creamy, about 3-5 minutes. Beat in egg, then add vanilla, orange flower water, orange juice, and zest. Sift together dry ingredients, and add to the butter mixture. Shape dough into 2 large flattened rounds. Wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. Heat oven to 350 degrees. On lightly floured surface, roll dough 1/8 inch thick. Dip cutters in flour and cut into desired shapes. Using a metal spatula, carefully transfer cookies to baking sheets, leaving a 1 inch space between cookies. Bake 8-10 minutes, being carefully NOT to let cookies brown. Cool completely or racks, then decorate with royal icing.
