  • How to Make Sesame Seed Cookies:

    2. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender-or work with your hands - until mixture resembles coarse meal.

    4. Gradually add more of the milk while mixing until dough holds together.
    5. Pull off small portions of dough and roll between palms of the hands into a finger-sized roll.
