Sesame Wafers

Ok, I'm blatantly procrastinating :)
But you're getting a recipe out of it, so no complaining ;)
I got today's recipe from Luisa's post on The Wednesday Chef. After reading her rave about them I obviously had to include them in Saturday's shenanigans and we weren't disappointed...quite the opposite...

Here are some reasons I like them
- you only need one bowl
-you only need 7 ingredients, most of which you'll have in your pantry
-no cookie cutters required
-they only take 7 minutes to bake
-they are super yummy :)

So get out your mixing bowl and get going!

Sesame Wafers
11/2 tbsp Butter
1 cup Light Muscovado Sugar
1 Egg
2 tbsp Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Sesame Seeds

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees.
Cream the butter and the sugar, then mix in the egg. Now mix in all the other ingredients.
Put some baking parchment onto a cookie sheet and, using a teaspoon, drop the dough onto the parchment.
These cookies will expand quite a bit so give them space.
Dip a knife into cold water and flatten the dough drops out a bit.
Bake the wafers for 7 minutes, then give them about the same amount of time to cool down a bit (still on the parchment but off the cookie sheet) before you peel them off the baking parchment.
Luisa suggests they keep for two weeks if you put them into a airtight container (like a pretty cookie tin) but the way ours are going you won't have to worry about them going off :)
