I have a brand new BLACK and DECKER hand mixer
that I LUV.....
bread dough hooks
SHELIA, can you love hand mixers ?
why, you bet your "beat it to a foam", you can !
We all love these little, simple and easy butter cookies so much,
I decided that YOU might like them, too.
Especially, right here at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I got the recipe in 1961 from my mother's best friend,
and I have been making them ever since.
SESAME SEED COOKIES
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup soft margarine (my olden recipe calls it OLEO)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
Mix all together and roll into a log in waxed paper..
Put in fridge.
When ready to bake a few or the whole batch,
roll into small balls
roll in sesame seeds
Bake 350 for about 10 minutes, or until golden
Let cool on rack until cool enough to make a thrumb print.
Wait until READY TO SERVE before adding a little of your
very favorite JELLY to the indentions.
...if you add it too soon, the jelly might make the cookie too soft..
I almost used POPPY SEED instead of SESAME SEED..
Man, I have to watch my silly self ALL THE TIME...:(
all thumbprinted and waiting to be booked...OH NO...
I mean, waiting for JELLY, JAM, PESERVES.
At this point, after cooled a little and indented,
is when I put them in bags for the freezer.
Then, when ready to serve, I add my choice of jellies.
They make the prettiest little cookie..
imagine with STRAWBERRY....or BLUEBERRY
even a little GREEN MINT JELLY
I am using APRICOT jam here so I can show you how pretty the cookies are...
dang !...that means I have to eat them or they will get....soft....
are my reasons for
..and, here's a few more reasons..
I am linking with FOODIE FRIDAY
My thanks to all the lovely hosts.
