DIRECTIONS

  • Cream butter and shortening until fluffy.
  • Gradually beat in sugar.
  • Beat in eggs.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices; stir into the egg mixture alternately with the cream and vanilla.
  • Shape dough with floured hands into desired shapes.
  • Shape pieces of dough into thick pencil shapes.
  • Brush with extra beaten egg.
  • Roll onto the sesame seeds to coat lightly.
  • Double over rolled dough and twist, or form into rings, figure eights or coils. I use about six-inch pieces.
  • Place on cookie sheets and bake in a moderate 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
