Honey Sesame Lace Cookies


    30 cookies


  • 3 tbsp. clover honey
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt



In a small non-corrosive saucepan, bring honey, sugar, butter and water to a boil over medium heat while constantly stirring.

Allow to simmer for approximately 1 minute.

Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, sesame seeds, flour and salt until well combined.

Cool dough until just warm to touch.

Portion 1 tsp. of dough and roll into balls.

Place on a parchment-lined sheet pan about 4″ apart. Or, spread evenly on a parchment-lined half pan and bake as one large cookie and break apart into rustic shapes.

Bake in a convection oven at 325 degrees for approximately 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through, cooking until cookies are flat and golden-brown.

Transfer with parchment paper to cooling racks.

Once cooled, store in an airtight container for several days.

Use as a garnish for desserts or ice cream.

Drizzle cookies with chocolate once cooled.

Add a little spice with some cayenne, ginger or chipotle pepper, and serve with a savory dish or as a carrier for a unique hors d’oeuvre.
