INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups pastry flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups sesame seeds, for rolling cookies
PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until combined.

Add eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Add milk and mix until smooth.

Add flours and baking powder; mix until dough forms.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 10-12 times or until smooth. Divide dough into portions. Shape each portion into a log. Cut logs into 2-inch pieces.

Soak the sesame seeds in room temperature water for about 5 minutes, then drain and place on a cookie sheet.

Roll cookies around in the sesame seeds and place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.

Bake until sesame seeds look toasted. Cool and serve.
