  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet.

  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, 3 tablespoons sesame seeds, the baking powder and salt. Cut in butter and shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture forms coarse crumbs. Add milk and stir until all the dry ingredients have been moistened.

  3. Pat dough out on a floured surface to make a 9- by 6-inch rectangle. Cut into six 3-inch squares; cut each square diagonally in half. Place scones on greased baking sheet about 1-inch apart. Brush tops with water and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sesame seeds.

  4. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown and scones sound hollow when gently tapped. Serve warm.
