2 cups butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup milk or fresh orange juice
8 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated orange rind - optional
1 egg - beaten


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 'N' 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.

Note: 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 'Augoules'.
