Roasted Sesame Seeds Cookies

Roasted Sesame Seeds Cookies ... Delicious cookies coated with toasted sesame seeds.

Roasted Sesame Seeds Cookies
 Makes : 36 ( balls ) or 6 dozen ( roll-out ) cookies

Ingredients :
  • 125 gm.  ghee ( clarified butter )
  • 125 gm.  sesame seeds
  • 275 gm.  plain flour
  • 1 tsp.  baking powder
  • 150 gm.  powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp.  vanilla essence
  • Milk, as required
    Method :
    • Melt ghee and refrigerate until it becomes solid.
    • In a pan, lightly roast sesame seeds over low heat; stirring until golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
    • Preheat oven at 180 C. Line the baking tray with parchment paper.
    • Sieve baking powder with flour. Add half of sesame seeds and keep aside.
    • Remove ghee from refrigerator. In a large bowl, beat ghee and sugar until creamy.
    • Add egg & vanilla and beat well.
    • Gradually work in the flour mixture. Mix gently with hands until it comes together.
    • If the dough is too dry to hold, add little milk, a tablespoon at a time, until it comes together.

    For balls :
    • Divide the dough into 36 equal sized balls, roll in remaining sesame seeds; then flatten slightly with your palms.
    • Arrange on the prepared baking tray, 1" apart.
    • Bake for 12 - 14 minutes. Remove from oven as soon as they turn golden, although some of them might still be soft.
    • Remove from the baking tray and let them cool on the wire rack. They will become crispy after cooling.

    For roll-out cookies :
    • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface.
    • Sprinkle remaining sesame seeds on the rolled dough. Lightly press / roll once again with rolling pin.
    • Cut them using a cookie cutter. Arrange them on the baking tray, 1" apart.
    • Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove from oven as soon as they turn golden.
    • Remove from the baking tray and let them cool on the wire rack.
