Sesame Seed Snack Cookies
20 mins (prep 20)
9 ingredients
12-14 servings
Not too sweet, covered in delicious sesame seeds, these are a favourite snack for my family. They keep about three days in a tin. I have tried using less oil, also draining some onto a paper towel after cooking, but without good results. The oil seems to be the magic ingredient for the special slightly chewy texture. The recipe is adapted from the same in "Chinese Cooking" by Mary Wilson.
