packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
sesame seeds, toasted
Wow! So delicious, and a great way to stretch ingredients! (Admittedly I chose this recipe mostly because I only had 1/2 c of sesame seeds on hand.) Amazing wafer thin, crisp cookies, and adding the lemon gives it a great aroma and flavor. One modification -- mine only took 5-7 minutes in the oven. I found it best to remove them 1-2 minutes after the edges just turn slightly brown, even though it is still soft in the middle, otherwise they can burn easily. They finished browning while cooling on the pan. Also I may try rolling in more sesame before placing on the pan next time, to make them look a little prettier.
Everything about this cookie was wonderful! Very quick and easy and very tasty! Not all children may like them, but very elegant on a tray for company and great for serving with tea.
I love sesame cookies, and my husband and I absolutely enjoyed these cookies (with a cup of peach tea!). Lemon flavor added a great change in these crisp sesame cookies. Although I expected these cookies to be more shortbread texture, they were great served when still warm and crispy.
We love sesame seeds and lemon, and these are tasty little cookies. My toddler loved helping me stir everything together, and they were so easy! Thanks for a family-friendly recipe that's beyond a typical cookie! Oh, and the nutritional information is way off--this makes approximately 5 dozen cookies, not 5 servings.
I liked the cookies, ours turned out thin. My 12 year old daughter loved them. The sesame seeds seem to fade into the cookie.
Excellent cookie for tea! Just added more sesame seeds and lemon zest!!
Double lemon zest. Cooked about 7 minutes for 1tsp size, 5 min. For 1/2 tsp. size.
I really enjoyed these and I used two lemons worth of zest (really like lemon). Will make again for sure! Thank you for sharing!
