60 servings
MeasureIngredient
12 tablespoons Butter
1 cup Sugar, brown
Eggs
1 cup Flour
½ teaspoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
¾ cup Sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 325. Cream butter until soft, then gradually beat in sugar and egg until mixture is fluffy. Combine flour and baking powder; stir into butter mixture. Add vanilla and sesame seeds and mix well. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 1-½" apart. Bake 12-15 minutes, until cookies are light brown.

Let cookies rest a minute, then remove immediately from baking sheet.

If cookies harden before removal, return to oven for a minute to soften.

"These cookies can be frozen, or will keep well in tightly-covered container."
