After trying my hand at countless sesame cookie recipes, my Italian girlfriend shared her Aunt Anne's recipe and I knew my search had ended! Basically an anise flavoured butter cookie covered in sesame seeds. The smell when removing them from the oven is wonderful!
Outstanding little cookie, great with coffee. Just a note on saving money. If you have an Asian market nearby, buy the sesame seeds there at 80% less than the normal grocery store. - 30 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thank you, thank you to the person who posted this recipe! When I was a little girl, my grandmother's neighbor made these same cookies. They are wonderful, and the recipe is perfect...they are just as I remembered. I highly recommend them! - 22 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow! My search has ended, too! I got some sesame seeds from our local bagel shop (he gave them to me already toasted) and they made all the difference in the world! Absolutely the hit of my Holiday cookie tray! Thanks! - 31 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
