- 1 cup sesame seeds
- 3/4 cup butter, 6 ounces, melted
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, 5 ounces
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium-low heat, shaking the skillet and turning frequently, until lightly browned and aromatic.
Heat the oven to 375° F
In a large mixing bowl mix the brown sugar, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, flour, salt, baking powder and toasted sesame seeds together until blended.
Drop dough by half-teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between cookies.
Bake the cookies for 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let them cool for about 2 minutes on baking sheets; remove from baking sheets to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store cooled sesame seed cookies in an airtight container.
Makes about 6 dozen.
