Biscochos (very special cookies)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Eggs
1 cup Sugar
½ cup Vegetable oil
4½ cup Flour
4 teaspoons Baking powder
1 cup Sesame seed

Beat eggs with a fork (reserve 4 tblsp. for later use). Add sugar, beating well, then oil. Beat well. Add flour and the baking powder, a little at a time, until it forms a smooth dough.

Cut 2½ inch circles of pastry, ¼ inch thick, and shape with fingers to form a cup shaped base or basket for large end of hard boiled egg. Roll strips ¼ inch thick abd cut two strips long enough to cross over the top of the egg and attach to the base. Decorate the top of arch with a little extra pastry to depict something of the Purim story or an animal or flower.

Use your imagination.

Add 1 tsp. sugar to the reserved egg, brush on the pastry and sprinkle with sesame seed.

Arrange all the pastry trimmed eggs on a cookie sheet and bake at 350oF approximately 20 minutes or until just barely golden.
