These are very interesting cookies. This recipe was given to me from a friend, and ..unfortunately I dont know how many it makes because Ive never made them personally. I know it makes quite a few cookies, but Im really not sure and I havent been able to find out. Please ignore yield. If I figure out how many it makes i will let you know. If you figure it out, please...let me know so I can make the changes.. or you can even make the changes. Ive tried them before, however.. and they are delicious ;-) Prep time doesnt include the 6-8 hours chilling time.
- 1 1⁄2 cups pastry flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup superfine sugar
- 125 ml butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- sesame seeds, to decorate
- Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
- In a larger bowl; beat the sugar, butter, egg and vanilla.

- Roll your dough into a cylinder about 12-inches long.
- Divide the dough into two and cover with wax paper.

- Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Delicious and so easy! I wasn't sure of the butter amount in cups so I used two sticks (1 cup) and maybe should have used a bit less as they cookies spread a bit. I made about 4 dozen tiny cookies which we all enjoyed with shrimp salad. Thanks for sharing!
