What you'll need

  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make it

  1. Heat the oven to 350ยบ F. Toast the sesame seeds on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep them from burning. Set the seeds aside to cool thoroughly.

  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, mixing until thoroughly combined. Fold in 1/3 cup of the sesame seeds.

  3. Shape the dough into 3/4-inch balls and roll them in the remaining sesame seeds to coat the surface of each one. Place the balls on two greased cookie sheets, leaving at least 1 inch between them, and bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for 2 minutes, then use a spatula to transfer them to a wire rack. Makes about 5 dozen.
