Regina Cookies (Sesame Biscotti)

Crispy Italian Cookies...This recipe was posted by FavoriteFixins at GroupRecipes.I used butter instead of shortening. I haven't used milk,because the dough was smooth and soft without it.Also reduced the temperature , as they were browning quickly at the suggested temperature.
