Greek Holiday Cookies
|Butter||4 Tablespoon, softened|
|Powdered sugar||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Half and half||2 Tablespoon|
|Cake flour||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Baking powder||2 Teaspoon|
|Egg yolk||1 , beaten|
|Sesame seeds||2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)|
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, beat butter and powdered sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and half-and-half.
2. Add cake flour mixed with baking powder and salt and beat on low speed until blended. Divide one fourth of dough into 9 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a thin rope about 6 inches long, fold in half, and twist like a corkscrew. If dough is sticky, add a bit more flour.
3. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove to a rack and let cool completely.
