sesame-sea salt cookies

One year ago, the group made Sesame-Sea Salt Cookies. For some now-forgotten reason, I didn’t. I almost bypassed them now, too (just out of laziness), but I don’t want my list of skipped recipes to grow too long…when I realized I could have this dough done with a few quick zips in the food processor, I thought, “why not?”

Rather than roll out the dough and cut it into rounds, I scooped it into little balls, which I then flattened into pucks and popped into a greased muffin tin to chill before seeding and baking. I quite like this muffin tin method and since I only did one-third of the recipe, it wasn’t much effort for six cookies.

These do have a nice sweet and salty balance to them, and a delicate, buttery shortbread crumb. We had a few last night with white wine and sharp cheddar and I’ll probably do something similar with the rest tonight.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of this week’s rewind on the TWD Blogroll!

  1. I remember really liking these cookies. Glad that you got another one off the list. I managed to make something and forgot to blog it. Have a great weekend.

  2. They look great. I only vaguely remember them.
