Easy Honey Sesame Cookies Recipe: This Honey Cookie Recipe Is the Bee's Knees

We have an older neighbor who is a beekeeper and a master gardener. He has several hives in his backyard, and as you pass by his house, you can see the bees buzzing by, going about their very important work of pollinating the beautiful flowers in his garden. His bees are so productive that our neighbor is able to make many jars of honey each summer, which he sells to passersby.

Last summer, we bought several jars of his honey. He gave us his family recipe for Honey Sesame Cookies, which are simply delightful. I have modified the recipe to our taste, and so it can be made gluten free.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


Here's how to make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet, over low heat, brown the sesame seeds in 1/4 cup butter. Stir constantly to prevent burning then cool thoroughly. 
  2. Cream 1/2 cup butter with the honey. Add egg and vanilla, then beat well. Add sesame seeds. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, then add that to the mixture. Mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. 
  3. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are brown around the edges. Enjoy with a cup of milk, tea or coffee.
