Orange, Sesame, and Honey Cookies


These are some of our favorite cookies. Crunchy and soft (is that combination even possible?) and subtlety sweet with a really cool orange honey scent. If you love toasted sesame seeds then you are going to love these. And in case you’re wondering….yes, they are even good frozen :-)


Orange, Sesame, and Honey Cookies




1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 large egg

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3  cup toasted sesame seeds + 1/3 cup for rolling cookies in

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons grated orange peel


Drizzle for finished, baked cookies – combine 1 tablespoon orange juice with 1 tablespoon honey. Mix well.





Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cover your cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, unsalted butter and vanilla in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy.

Add egg to mixture and beat until just blended.

Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt.

Mix in 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds, 2 tablespoons honey and grated orange peel into cookie dough and mix until combined.

Place the other 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds in a bowl; scoop dough by tablespoonfuls, and roll in sesame seeds. Arrange 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely.

Drizzle the combined orange juice and honey on cooled cookies.
