In a mixing bawl mix with a Spoon or by hand the fresh cream and sugar well.
Add the eggs one by one. Add the lemon or orange zest and lemon essence vanilla baking powder 
 mix all the ingredients with half of the flour and begin to adding more flour and mix well. We put flour as needed to make the dough not too hard, but does not stick to your hands.
Allow dough to rest for a quarter of an hour in the fridge.  Roll  cookies in desired shape spread a little beaten egg on top of each cookie to shine. I usually put one egg in a bowl and add a little water, beat then spread on cookies well and sprinkle sesame seeds on top bake at 180 ° for 10 '-20', depending on the size.
