Tempting bite sized butter cookies rolled in sesame seeds and then baked.
I thought the butter in these cookies give them a very good flavor. They baked up much bigger than I expected so next time I will roll them a little thinner or bake them a little longer. I did use more sesame seeds than called for. I like these cookies very much. - 25 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My dad was a baker and used to make cookies that tastes exactly like these! I made exactly as written and found them to be very easy to make. I dipped the whole rope in the milk and sesame seeds and then cut them into bite size pieces, instead of dipping each individually. It saved alot of time! - 11 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Rosaria, thanks for this recipe!! The cookies look and taste great. I did use much more than 3/4 cup Sesame seeds however. I also found that it was easier to divide the dough into eighths before making a "rope" -- it was just much easier to handle. Also, when I cut the rope into 2 inch pieces, I gently rolled the piece again (before dipping in milk) to get it into a shape and size that worked and looked inviting. To those who are considering making this recipe, the prep time is a little misleading --- it takes much longer than 10 minutes to get all the ingredients together and the dough mixed to the right consistency but, it wa well worth the effort! - 21 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
