Sesame Cookies and more Awards



Sesame Cookies ... These cookies are simple, buttery & delicious. They are flavorful but not too sweet. Goes well with coffee or tea!


Sesame Cookies are the most popular cookies in my house. My brother is addicted to sesame cookies and he always asks me to make them. So far, I've tried at least 4 other recipes. This particular recipe is his new favorite :)
