Sesame Crisps

Hubby’s mom always makes the cookie platter for the family holiday celebration. Last year I got to help her out with the cookie platter. It was fun to get to try some of Hubby’s family favorites. These cookies are Hubby’s mom’s favorite. They have little black and white sesame seeds in them (I made them with only white seeds). These are very delicate cookies and need to be served the day they are baked.

Sesame Crisps

Ingredients:

6 Tbsp butter, softened
2/3 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 c plus 2 Tbsp flour
4 tsp white sesame seeds, toasted
4 tsp black sesame seeds

Directions:

Toast white sesame seeds on a cookie sheet for a few minutes. Watch careful and only toast until lightly browned.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 large cookie sheets w/nonstick cooking spray or brush with butter.

In large bowl, beat butter, sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, salt & baking powder and beat. Add egg, beat until well combined. With a spoon, stir in flour.

If you’re using the black seeds, spoon half the batter into a small bowl; add toasted white seeds to half the batter and the black seeds into the other half of batter.

Drop by rounded teaspoons, about 3” apart, onto cookie sheets. Bake about 8 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through the baking time, until cookies are set and edges are golden. Let cookies remain on sheets for only about 30 seconds before removing to racks to cool.

Wipe sheets clean and butter again, repeat until all is done.

*Note- if you inadvertently leave the cookies on the sheet too long and they are hard to remove, just place in oven for a minute to warm/soften them again.

    I made this tonight for a birthday and it was truly *amazing*! We all loved it and all the kids came back wanting seconds. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out incredibly moist and gooey, deliciously sweet, and spiced. I used half Granny Smith apples and half Gala. I also only had a 9″ pan and by the time I filled it up I still had enough batter (and some extra apple slices left) to fill another 9″ pan. I didn’t have any extra caramel topping, but decided to just bake the batter with the few left over apple slices. Next time I will double the amount of the caramel topping and cut up two more apples and make two full pans worth. It takes a little bit of time to make, but is not a difficult recipe to follow and is oh-so worth it! Thanks for sharing this!

    I have been reviewin online more than 4 hours today for windows 7
    starter snpc oa toshiba & Pimento Cheese Burger , yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
