  4. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices; stir into the egg mixture alternately with the cream and vanilla.
  5. Shape dough with floured hands into desired shapes.
  6. Shape pieces of dough into thick pencil shapes.
  7. Brush with extra beaten egg.
  8. Roll onto the sesame seeds to coat lightly.
