Sesame seed cookies

They are absolutely delicious and so addictive.  Crunchy when you bite into them and  chewy in the middle.  Can be kept in a container for up to one week, but I promise you- they won't last this long!


  • 2/3 glass of sesame seeds
  • 100g soft butter
  • 1/4 glass caster sugar
  • 1/2 glass light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 vanilla pod or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 glass plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp honey

Place the sesame seeds on a hot pan, until golden. 
Beat the butter, white and brown sugar, vanilla pod, honey and cinnamon.  
Add an egg and mix until well combined.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt.  
Add half of the seeds into the mixture and mix in.
Form walnut-sized balls and roll in the remaining seeds. The mixture is very sticky so you can use a little oil or water for your hands. Place on the baking sheet, well apart and bake for 10-15 minutes at 190C, until golden. 
Take out the oven and leave to cool on the tray for couple of minutes.  
Cookies will be soft when hot and will get a little harder when cooled.


Recipe makes about 15 large cookies
