31 Days of Cookies . Day 1. Sesame Thins

For the month of October, I have accepted the 31-day challenge to write on a topic every day for 31 days. My topic? Cookies. You may not get a recipe every day (not that I'm lacking for cookie recipes...), but we'll definitely be talking cookies.

Cookies are the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of coffee (or your beverage of choice). Just hold them it in your hand. No plate, no fork, no spoon. Just a cookie.

One of my favorites growing up was my mom's Sesame Thins.  Perfect for Day 1.

Sesame Thins

1 C (2 sticks) butter
1 C sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
2 C sifted flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 C sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 350° F
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. 
Beat in the egg and vanilla. 
Sift flour, salt and soda 
Stir flour mixture into the butter mixture, half at at time, blending well to make a soft dough

Wrap the dough in waxed paper; chill several hours or overnight.
Roll dough, a teaspoonful at at time, into small balls

Roll balls in sesame seeds to coat lightly

Place on a cookie sheet
Bake 10 minutes
Cool completely

Makes 5 dozen


Be sure to check back each day for more cookie goodness.
