Sesame Seed Cookies

These sophisticated cookies have wonderful flavor and crunch and are a nice change of pace from the run of the mill recipes that float around every season. The cookies are very attractive, and look great wrapped in clear cellophane bags, or wrapped in rows and given in decorative boxes. My favorite way to toast sesame seeds is to place them in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Stir them constantly until they are fragrant and lightly toasted, about 3-4 minutes.

1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup toasted sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and heavily grease several baking sheets. Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda into a small bowl. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix until very smooth. Mix in the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the sesame seeds. Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto the prepared cookie sheets, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie. Bake for about 6 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
