Sesame Cookies

I love these cookies because they’re quick and easy to make. You don’t even need a mixer to do this as you can just mix it by hand. It is lightly sweeten but you can add more sugar to it. The sesame seeds gave these cookies a very nice nutty flavor to it and it goes really well with a cup of tea.


1 stick/1/2 cup unsalted butter – room temperature
½ cup of sugar
1 cup + 3 tbsp of flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup of sesame seeds, lightly toasted

1. Heat oven to 350 degree F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda, set it aside.
2. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla. Continue to mix until well combined. Add in the flour mixture, ½ of the sesame seeds and mix until incorporated.
3. Drop a spoon of the cookie dough into the balance sesame seeds, roll it and lightly, press it flat and put it into the baking sheet.
4. Bake until golden brown – about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool on a wire rack.

Great! Looks so good. My dad like sesame cookies very much, but store bought cookies always too sweet. Of course, I want to try this. :)
