It’s getting colder each day out here. Fall’s come to Gdansk for good and although it’s beautiful outside with all the yellows, reds and golds around, the cold starts to annoy me a little bit. Because of it, yesterday I spend at home, lazily catching up with my favorite TV shows.
It was just one of those days, you know? Just picture it… The rain outside and windows covered with tiny drops of water, a mug of hot coffee with milk and cinnamon in hands, a fluffy blanket and shirtless Stephen Amell on the screen (or Emily Bett Rickards in her short dress – whatever you prefer). What more could a girl want, right? (Except real Stephen instead of a blanket, of course…)
But how sesame cookies fit into this warm and cozy screenplay? The answer is simple. They fit perfect. 😛
And let’s not forget they taste amazing with coffee. They are also super easy and super fast to prepare hence perfect for lazy days. Yesterday was a perfect day to make them.
I’ve had this recipe for a few years now, written on the page of an old exercise book. I don’t even know exactly where I found it (probably I got it when snooping in cookbooks section; you already know I have this obsessive–compulsive thing for cookbooks and I can’t help myself; I have to touch them, open and read! :D). Somehow I managed to memories this one because there are only four ingredients and you just have to stir them together. It’s that simple.
Lazy Sesame Cookies
1 cup of sesame seeds
1 cup of powdered milk
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cube of butter, softened
Crush sesame seeds and sugar in a coffee grinder. Stir in powdered milk and butter. Roll the kneaded dough and wrap it in foil.
Leave in a refrigerator for about 1 hour. After that time, cut on 2cm wide cookies. Bake on a tray lined with baking paper, in an oven preheated to 160C for about 15 minutes.
You can also skip the part of grinding sesame seeds and sugar. I already tried that on an especially lazy day and the cookies were as good as in the original recipe. If you’ll find a handful of raisins or dried cranberries they’re might add some variety.
That’s it folks. Enjoy!
