Sesame Seed Cookies
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
10 ingredients
3 servings
Though these are reminiscent of the traditional Greek or Italian cookies of the same name, the recipes originates in the US south and traces its roots to Africa. Nutty toasted sesame seeds are included in the dough as well as serving as the crispy coating. They are now commonly served at Kwanzaa celebrations. I have not tried this yet but am posting for ZWT 3.
