Sesame Seed Cookies

Imagine a cookie that brings back memories of growing up Italian, going to the local Italian Bakery and ordering a pound or so of heaven. Think about biting into a crispy exterior and soft interior with delicate flavors of lemon, cinnamon, and cherry. This is what you will experience when you eat a sesame seed cookie.


1          cup crisco
¾         cup brown sugar
½         cup white sugar
3          eggs
½         tsp. lemon juice
½         tsp. cherry juice
½         tsp. cinnamon
 pinch salt
3          cups flour
3          tsp. baking powder
½         lb. sesame seeds

Mix the first three ingredients together and then add the remainder; continue mixing till mixture has cookie dough consistency (like play dough).  Place a little oil on palm of hand, take some dough the size of a thumb and form cookies into either round or oval.  Dip top in sesame seeds and bake in preheated 3750   oven.  Do not grease pan.
