Crispy Sesame Cookies

What I used:

All purpose flour : 1 1/4 cups 
Egg : 1
Butter : 1 stick (1/2 cup)
White granulated sugar : 1/2 cup
Brown sugar : 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds : 1 cup
Vanilla extract : 1 tsp
Salt : 1/4 tsp
Baking powder : 1/2 tsp

How I did:

  • Heat a pan on medium heat and roast the sesame seeds until lightly brown.   Keep them aside to cool.
  • Heat the oven to 350 deg F.  
  • Sift all purpose flour, baking powder and salt and keep aside.
  • Take butter, white sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and cream them together for about 2 minutes.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract and beat till combined.  
  • Add the flour mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • Fold in 1/3 cup of roasted sesame seeds.
  • Take a tea spoon sized dough, shape into a ball and roll in the sesame seeds to coat.  Similarly make the remaining cookies and place them on a greased cookie sheet leaving 1 inch space between each cookie. Slightly press the balls with a spatula to flatten.
  • Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or edges turn golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring from the cookie sheet.
  • Let cool completely before storage.
  • Makes about 80 cookies.
