1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds


2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

3 to 4 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Place sesame seeds in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sesame seeds. Place 1 inch apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Meanwhile, combine all frosting ingredients in medium bowl, adding enough half & half for desired spreading consistency. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Frost cooled cookies; let stand until set.

  5. STEP 5

    Store cookies between sheets of waxed paper in loosely covered container.

Tip #1

- Sesame seed is available in some stores in the Asian or spice section. To toast sesame seed, spread onto large baking sheet. Bake at 350°F., stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Watch closely as seeds can burn quickly. Cool completely.

Tip #2

- For gift giving, stack cookies in a decorated cellophane bag. Tie bag with a ribbon and attach a few of your favorite tea bags.
