Homemade Sesame (Abadi) Cookies
I always have a jar of these delicious cookies at home, and everyone loves them.
Once you make them at home, you may never go back to buying the packaged ones.
This recipe produces super addictive savory cookies with only 7 ingredients (including water) that almost everyone always has on hand.
Fill up a cookie jar with these crunchy goodies and see how quickly that jar empties!
Don’t let the high yield fool you, they won’t last long, guaranteed. These cookies are dairy-free since they have oil in them and not butter. Try them, you’ll definitely fall in love!
Makes 60 cookies
600 grams flour (4 cups + 4 Tbsp)
1 level Tbsp salt
1/2 Tbsp sugar
240 ml pale ale beer (1 cup)
180 ml canola oil (3/4 cup)
60 ml water (1/4 cup)
80 grams sesame seeds (3/4 cup)
1. Using the paddle attachment of your mixer, process all the ingredients into a smooth and soft dough. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. Divide the dough into 60 pieces, each piece weighing 20 grams. Using your hands, roll each piece out to a 15 cm long log and then make a ring, pinching the two ends together. Arrange on a baking tray. The cookies don’t expand so you can crowd them a bit but don’t place them too close together, to allow for even baking.
3. Preheat an oven to 180°C and bake for 35 – 40 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
Good to know…
You can’t leave the beer out and it has to be a pale ale. It doesn’t matter what brand you use, as long as it’s not malt beer or dark beer.
