Italian Seed Cookies

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In medium bowl with electric mixer, blend shortening, sugar, 3 eggs, flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract.
  3. Break dough off in small balls and roll them in your palms to make oval logs about 2 to 3 inches long.
  4. In separate bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Dip logs into egg white and roll in sesame seeds until covered.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Makes 3 to 4 dozen cookies

* Look for toasted sesame seeds in the Asian food section of stores. Two 3.75-ounce jars are plenty. To toast your own sesame seeds, place in a dry skillet over medium heat. Toast until seeds turn light brown, shaking the pan to keep the seeds from scorching.
