      These are lovely and soft and delicious. They also taste quite authentic, very much like the ones my mum would make. The only thing I would change is the egg wash - they look much better (all golden and brown) if you just brush them with egg only, rather than the egg and milk mixture.

      These cookies are sweet and buttery and really easy to make! Ended up adding a little extra liquid to the dough because it was a bit too dry. Also, when it's time to shape the cookies, make sure the strands aren't too thick or else they will turn out a bit doughy. Love the addition of sesame seeds.
