Ingredients

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter
softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons brandy
or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg yolks
beaten with 1 tablespoon of milk, for glaze
3 tablespoons sesame seeds

Directions

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.
