Sesame Bon Bon Cookies

READY IN: 3hrs 45mins
Recipe by BonnieZ

A trusted recipe which has always been part of my Christmas cookie selection. They keep well and also freeze well. If you store them in a cookie tin, they will be crisp. If you store them in a tupperware type container they will be soft.Adapted from a womens magazine years ago.

These were just sugar cookies with sesame seeds. I was hoping for more umph. They DID all get eaten, though! :)
