Sesame Seed Cookies

I discovered this recipe for Sesame Seed Cookies in The Precious Moments Cookbook. We were looking for a new type of cookie and had a large bag of sesame seeds. They are not too sweet and are best when fully cool. This is very hard at my house where people steal cookies off the cooling tray!

Sesame Cookies

1 Cup butter
3/4 Cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 Cup toasted sesame seeds

Cream butter with sugar. Add remaining ingredients except sesame seeds. Chill 1 hour or more. Roll into 1" balls, then roll in sesame seeds. Place on greased cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of glass. Bake for 8-10 ,omutes or until lightly browned.

Makes 5 dozen. (We ended up with 26 cookies. I must make mine too big.)

These are crunchy and slightly nutty. They were wonderful with coffee or a glass of milk.
