SESAME COOKIES


~ Mrs. E. W. Pearle, newspaper clipping

1 lb. butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1 c. raw sesame seeds
1/2 c. chopped almonds
2 c. shredded coconut

Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Roll in three logs, two inches in diameter, then wrap in foil. Chill well.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Slice dough logs in 1/4 inch thick slices and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Notes: I’m generally not a fan of crunchy cookies, but these are just mildly crispy and I like them. If you use butter, the logs hold their shape well after a couple hours in the fridge. If you use margarine, they are easier to slice after a day of refrigerating than after just a couple hours, but they still don't hold their shape well while being sliced.
