Sesame Seed Cookies by Helen

Sesame Seed Cookies were my very favorite thing my Aunt Helen made. I loved it when she brought these to Family Parties they were so yummy.  I can't wait to try to make them, I know that she be watching and me as I panic because they don't turn out fabulous the very first time, "Practice, just keep practicing and you will get feel of it." That's what she would tell me and just knowing that will keep me braiding those 16 dozen cookies, yikes.

Sesame Seed Cookies

1 dozen eggs, separated
1 lb butter
1 cup shortening
Large can evaporated milk
About 20 cups of flour
4 Tbs baking powder
4 Tbs vanilla
3 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
Sesame seeds

Melt butter and shortening and let cool.  Add sugar and egg yolks.  Beat egg whites until stiff and fold in.  Add the rest of the ingredients and enough flour to make an easy dough. Roll out flat and cut with a pizza cutter and then shape. Braid on an oiled board.  Brush with eggs and sesame seeds.  Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.  Makes 16 dozen.
