Ingredients
  Butter 4 Tablespoon, softened
  Powdered sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Half and half 2 Tablespoon
  Cake flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Egg yolk 1 , beaten
  Sesame seeds 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Directions

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.
