Whats In The Cookie Jar

Whats In The Cookie Jar This Week
 Wonderful Italian Sesame Seed Cookies
Recipe From Tates Bake Shop Cookbook
Prepare To Bake
Italian Sesame Seed Cookies
Tates Bake Shop Cookbook
page 35
Prepared In Miz Helen's Kitchen
makes 32 cookies
1/2 cup salted butter softened to room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1 2/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2  cup raw sesame seeds
Prepare the oven to 375 degrees. Grease one cookie sheet or line it with Silpat.
Cream the butter and sugar till soft and creamy.  Add the vanilla and egg. Mix them well.
Mix in the flour and baking powder.
Place the sesame seeds in a small bowl and set  aside. Form the dough into small balls and roll them until they are smooth. 
Toss the balls one at a time into the Sesame seeds, pressing gently so that I have a 2 inch long,
1 1/4 inch wide cookie; these are about 1/2 the size of a commercial product. The cookies don't spread, so they can be placed fairly close together.
Bake them for 25 to 30 minutes or until they are golden brown all over.
Cool them on the cookie sheet.
Enjoy!
I served this cookie with tea for an afternoon tea for some of my friends. Everyone loved the cookie, so I wanted to share it with all of you. Of course I will be taking these to Full Plate Thursday and I sure hope to see you there. Thanks for stopping by today and come back soon!
Peace and Joy

  2. I have to get my hands on a Tate's baking book. Sesame seed cookies look like something right out of an Italian kitchen. I was pleased to see that my grocery store has started selling Tate's cookies.

  5. These look really good. Would I be correct in thinking they are more savory than sweet? I love a savory cookie.

  7. There is a little bakery that I have visited in Boston's North End that has a sesame cookie like yours ... yours look much prettier, though. More golden and coated more uniformly with the sesame seeds. Kudos!
