Another mention in the New York Times!

Last week, the New York Times' dining section invited readers to submit photos of their prettiest holiday cookies.  I immediately thought back to the beautiful sparkly sesame cookies I had made my first winter in Baltimore and the interesting photo I took of them so I submitted it right away .  When I went to NYTimes.com this morning, what did I see among their 35 picks but my photo!  (It's the one all the way on the right in the 2nd row down - here's the direct link.)




The recipe is not my own; it's from the December 2006 issue of Gourmet magazine - the holiday cookie issue.  There were so many cookies to choose from in the issue but these really stood out to me for their unique flavor and delicate sparkle.  The appearance of these cookies relies on luster dust, and, fortunately, I always have a number of colors on hand, so I made a trio of colors of these cookies - copper, gold, and silver.  They're just as tasty as they are beautiful; they have a very delicate sesame flavor and aren't too sweet, and they're also very easy to make.

These aren't cookies for everyone - the sesame flavor is a little out-of-the-ordinary and they're not very sweet so they likely won't satisfy the average cookie eater.  However, if you're looking for something different in both appearance or taste, these are it.
