Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375ºF. Heat 1/2 cup butter and the sesame seed in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown (watch carefully so mixture does not burn); remove from heat. Remove 2 tablespoons sesame seed; drain. Reserve remaining sesame seed mixture for frosting.
  • 2 Mix 2 tablespoons sesame seed, 1/2 cup softened butter, the granulated sugar, egg and water in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
  • 3 Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to about 1/2-inch thickness with bottom of greased glass dipped in sugar.
  • 4 Bake about 10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5 Mix remaining ingredients and reserved sesame seed mixture until spreadable. Spread frosting on cookies.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

In France, browned butter is known as beurre noisette—a butter cooked to a light hazelnut color. It has a deeper, nuttier flavor than butter cooked for a shorter time.

Sesame seed contains oil that can become rancid over time; be sure to store in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent it from spoiling.
