Cream the butter and the sugar. Add the
egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add
the milk, vanilla, orange rind and 2 cups of flour and the
baking powder mixing it all well together. Gradually add the
rest of the flour. You will have to work with your hands as
the dough will get rather stiff.
Break off small portions about the size
of walnuts or golf balls and roll them into ropes about the
size of a pencil. These can be arranged into circles or coiled
into an ĎNí shape.
Place your cookies on an ungreased
baking sheet and brush the tops with the beaten egg. Bake at
350F for about 18-20 minutes.
Feel free to get creative using your Easter eggs too. Wrap a
rope of dough around them so they can be baked into the cookie
itself these are called ĎAugoulesí. My mom used to coil dough
around an egg and left a small piece straight so it resembled
a flat snail and had two whole cloves pushed in for eyes.
