      This is a wonderful cookie! What sets this recipe apart from the other sesame cookie recipes is the orange zest, this gives the cookie a little hint of citrus. The problems I had with this recipe was the dryness of the dough and getting the seeds to stick to the cookes. The dough has to be kneaded by hand to get it to stick together and the cookies need to be dipped in milk before rollig in the sesame seeds. This cookie is now one of my favorites and is often requested by friends and family.
