 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Butter
  • 1 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Vanilla

From 'The Way Yia Yia Did It' published by St. Sophia Greek Orthodox
Church in San Antonio, named after their annual 'Funstival'

Cream butter with sugar in an electric mixer, adding sugar slowly. Beat 20
minutes or until the consistency of whipped cream. Add vanilla, then eggs
one at a time. Beat well after each addition. Take from mixer. With a
wooden spoon or rubber spatula, fold in 4 cups of flour sifted together
with baking powder. Knead in remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a
soft non-sticky dough is achieved. If large eggs are used, a little more
flour may be needed. Pinch off dough the size of a walnut and roll pencil
thin, fold in half side by side and twist. Brush with beaten egg yolk and
press sesame seeds on each piece. Place on cookie sheets and bake at 350
degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 50 to 60 cookies.
