  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter, sugar and vanilla.   Add 2 eggs and blend well.  Add milk and orange juice and beat on high for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda.  Add flour to butter mixture and beat well until a soft dough is formed (add a bit more flour if needed, until dough is no longer sticky but soft).

  • Beat the remaining egg with the 2 tablespoons of water.  Brush each cookie with egg wash.  You may sprinkle with sesame seeds at this point, if desired.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
