I uploaded the photos and recipe of this addictive cookie, with, I swear, every intention of writing the post and publishing it during my travels. I was counting on the sleepless jet lagged nights to get those brain juice to flow again… Alas, unfortunately (or fortunately), this time I adapted to the wild swings in time zone quite effortlessly. I slumbered easily at bed time and woke up at reasonably normal time in the morning. Perhaps it was the undisciplined odd dose of Melatonin or (it was) tiredness finally setting in after a month of mental and physical challenges at the home front….

In any case, I baked these a week before I left for my month-long business trip and they were a real hit among my sisters and friends. I have long wanted to bake a cookie with ground peanut – an addictive fragrant snack that would snap with fresh crispness…. I am NOT a fan of chewy cookies.

Encrusted with a generous spray of toasted sesame seeds, I envision this eggless cookie formula (from Alex Goh’s Cookies )to be a crowd pleaser at bake sell and gatherings.  Spiked generously with ground peanuts and ground sesame seeds, every mouthful turns into an indulgent burst of buttery nuttiness that is totally addictive. The copious amount of butter used in the recipe is , I believe the secret to the super crispiness of the cookie.  I have taken this with milk and with coffee and both combinations were equally sensational.

If you are searching for a crisp and fragrant cookie, look no further – this, I classify as a MUST TRY.

hi there – when you mean ground sesame, you do mean the ones without sugar right? sesame powder (with sugar included) is far more common here!


5 Shirley@Køkken May 6, 2013

Hi Sonia- yes, ground sesame without sugar… what you can do is buy baked sesame seeds and ground it yourself…

Is corn flour, corn starch?


12 Janiese December 12, 2013

Can coconut oil be used in place of butter and shortening. If so, can I get the measurements. Thank you


13 Shirley@Køkken December 14, 2013

Hi Janiese- I have never baked with coconut oil before but I think you can definitely try to replace shortening though the texture may be less crispy.
