If lard is used, melt it and cool slightly. Sift the four, baking powder, and sugar into a bowl. Make a well in the center and drop the lard or oil, the egg, and water into it. Work in the flour mixture with the hand until a smooth ball of dough is formed. Roll out 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a cookie cutter; arrange on a greased cookie sheet. Brush with the egg yolk and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until browned.
