DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl combine flour, sugar, salt and butter. Knead into a smooth dough. If it is too crumbly, add a little milk or water (just enough to make it workable). If it is too wet, add enough flour to make dough workable.
  • Put the sesame seeds onto a plate or platter.
  • Take off walnut-sized dough nuggets and roll them into balls. Flatten them slightly pressing them into the sesame seeds.
  • Transfer cookies to a paper-lined baking sheet and make an indentation in the middle of each cookie using your fingers or the handle of a spoon. Fill this with jam/nutella/nut butter.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 190°C/375°F for 12-15 minutes or until bottoms are slightly golden.
  • Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
