Pro Zia Josephine Maggio’s Regina biscotti
(sesame cookies)

Ingredients for Cookies

1 cup Crisco oil              
3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar            
3 eggs                           
½ cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla          
3 cups flour                   
½ lb. sesame seeds

Mix well the first six ingredients, then add flour. Shape dough into balls about the size of a walnut. Dip each ball in milk ( or cream) then roll in sesame seeds and shape like a football and place on cookie sheet. Bake in 375 degree oven on bottom rack for 10 minutes. Then move up to top rack and bake additional 10 minutes. Place next sheet on bottom rack and rotate accordingly until all dough is baked. I cheat and bake them on the middle rack for 15-20 minutes…amen!
Sometimes they’re shaped more like a fat finger!
