   Cream butter with sugar in an electric mixer, adding
   sugar slowly. Beat 20 minutes or until the consistency
   of whipped cream. Add vanilla, then eggs one at a
   time.  Beat well after each addition. Take from mixer.
   With a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, fold in 4 cups
   of flour sifted together with baking powder. Knead in
   remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft
   non-sticky dough is achieved.  If large eggs are used,
   a little more flour may be needed.  Pinch off dough
   the size of a walnut and roll pencil thin, fold in
   half side by side and twist. Brush with beaten egg
   yolk and press sesame seeds on each piece. Place on
   cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
   or until golden brown.
   Makes 50 to 60 cookies.
