Preheat oven to 375℉ (190℃).

Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, brandy and vanilla, mixing well. Add flour, baking soda and salt, mixing well after each addition.

Working with rounded teaspoons of dough, use palms to roll each piece back and forth on a lightly floured surface until it forms a 6-inch rope.

Bring ends together to form a hairpin shape, then gently twist 2 to 3 times. Lightly pinch ends together.

Arrange 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets, brush with egg glaze, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden. Cool on racks.

Store airtight at room temp for 2 weeks. Freeze for longer storage.

Is it baking powder or baking soda? You list ingredients as baking powder, but then later when mixing , you say baking soda.
