Sesame Cookies Recipe

These cookies are tasty, toasty and crunchy sesame seed cookies. They could be described as the perfect cookie, flavorful but not too sweet.

Sesame Cookies Recipe



  1. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla to the sugar-butter and mix well until fluffy.
  4. Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time to the egg-butter mixture. Mix well after each addition.
  5. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead until smooth.
  6. Take small amounts of dough (about 1 Tbs) and shape into little loaves.
  7. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  8. Dip each cookie loaf into the milk and then roll in sesame seeds until well coated.
  9. Place on oiled cookie sheet and bake at 375F for 20 minutes or until browned.
  10. Remove from the tray and allow to cool.

Note: These cookies are great after a meal. They go well with coffee or anisette. Shhhh, don't tell anyone, they also make a good breakfast cookie. There's less sugar in these cookies than some breakfast cereals.
