Sesame Seed Cookies Recipe

Sesame Seed Cookies

My cousin, Rosemarie Calabro, has been making these Sesame Seed cookies for about 15 years.  They are really good, and every year at Christmas time she makes these cookies.  But I added a little more sugar (to make them sweeter) and nutmeg to the cookies.  So here goes!!

Sesame Seed Cookies Recipe

Sesame Seed Cookies

2 sticks margarine, softened

¾ cup sugar

3 eggs

3 ¾ cups flour

3 tsp. baking powder

½ cup milk

1 ½ tsp. vanilla

¾ tsp. nutmeg

Sesame seeds

Cream the margarine and sugar; mix well.  Add the eggs and mix well.

At this point add only 1 cup of flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder to the creamed margarine mixture.  Then you add SOME of the milk (you have ½ cup to work with), vanilla and nutmeg, then you have 2 ¾ cup of flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder still to add; so add a little of the flour and baking powder until the milk mixture is gone.

Roll the mixture into 1 ½ x 1 ½ logs; then into milk; then into the sesame seeds.

Put parchment lined baking sheets (get 4 sheets ready), put 5 sesame logs across; and 6 sesame logs down on the sheets.

Bake on 375 F. for 10 – 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
