Sesame Seed Cookies
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup sesame seeds, toasted
In a large bowl, sift flour, and baking powder. Add brown sugar and vanilla extract. Mix well. Gradually add butter and as much water as needed to form a dough. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix honey and 1 1/2 tablespoons of water. Add sesame seeds and toss to coat.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Form balls from dough, about 1 1/2 inches large. Roll ball in sesame seed mixture, careful to leave the bottom free of seeds. Place bottom side down onto parchment paper, about two inches apart.
Bake in oven about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool on cookie rack before serving.
