Sesame and Flax Seed Cookies
Crispy-chewy and loaded with seeds, these delicious cookies will satisfy your sweet-tooth any day.
Servings: 24 cookies
- 1/4 cup butter (softened)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup spelt flour
- 1/8 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- 1/2 cup flax seeds
- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger (or frozen - see above note in post)
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Cream together butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.
Stir in flour and baking powder.
Gently fold in seeds and ginger.
Drop by teaspoon onto baking stone or lined baking sheet.
Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon before baking.
Bake for 6-8 minutes or until cookies have browned.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
This dough will be quite mucky and seem a bit difficult to "flatten" before baking. Don't sweat it. Just use your fingers and the back of the spoon to flatten the dough down a bit before putting in the oven.
Be sure to leave ample space between cookies as they spread and flatten while baking. 4 rows of 3 on a baking sheet works well.
