Sesame Cookie

Nutritional Breakdown: (per cookie, based on 48 cookies) Each serving contains: Calories 77, 8 g Carbohydrates, 19 g Protein, 5 g Total Fat (2 g saturated, 2 monounsaturated, 1 polyunsaturated), 53 mg sodium
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/3 1/2 cup white seeds, as needed
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter or margarine, shortening, and white and brown sugar.
  • Add the eggs and almond extract, and beat until well blended. Stir in the flour mixture and mix well. The dough will be dry and crumbly at this point.
  • Use your fingers to form the mixture into a dough, and then form the dough into 2 rolls or logs that are 10 12 inches long. Wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 and preferably 4 hours.
  • Take a log and lightly score the dough at 3/4 inch intervals so that you have 15 pieces and cut the dough. Roll each piece into a small ball and roll the ball in the bowl of sesame seeds to cover. (Note: If you like you can brush the ball with lightly beaten egg prior to dipping in the sesame seeds, to help the seeds stick to the cookie). Place the balls on a lightly greased cookie tray, approximately 2 inches apart.
  • Bake the cookies at 325 degrees for about 15 - 17 minutes, or until a fork inserted in the middle comes out clean and they easily lift from the baking sheet. Cool. When thoroughly cooled, store in a sealed container.
