What to do with lots of sesame?
Sesame Cranberry Cookies
Adapted from Chefkoch.de
300 g flour
100 g sugar
100 g sesame seeds
125 g butter
1 sachet vanilla sugar (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
2-4 tablespoons yoghurt
50 g dried cranberries, roughly chopped
- Combine all ingredients until you get a smooth, slightly sticky dough. (If you feel like it: it works very well just using your hands.)
- Cool dough in fridge for about 30 minutes.
- Roll small balls using your hands, flatten, and put on prepared baking sheet.
- Bake at 180°C (350°F) for about 15 minutes.
I reduced the sugar by 50 g. I added the cranberries and had to double the amount of yoghurt to 4 tablespoons or the dough would have been too dry. I also added a splash of milk but only because it was necessary. Leave out if your dough is moist enough.
I also accidentally baked them at 180°C and not 200°C which left them a bit soft (which I love!).
I really like it! Not too sweet and very sesameny (or sesamy?). Definitely don't omit the cranberries!
