Italian Sesame Cookies

I like to lightly toast the sesame seeds first. That may be why the cookies taste peanutty!

Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup butter, softened

  • 1/4

    cup each brown and granulated sugars

  • 2

    eggs

  • 2

    tsp vanilla

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 2

    tsp baking powder

  • 1/4

    tsp salt

  • milk

  • 1

    cup sesame seeds

Directions

Heat oven to 350. Mix flour, bp, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend well with electric mixer. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet, blending into a rough dough. Break off small pieces of dough and shape them with your hands into small logs about two inches long and one inch thick. Dip into milk and roll in sesame seeds. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet at least two inches apart. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove to rack to cool. Optional: For a sweeter variation, dip half the cookie into melted chocolate.
