Honey Sesame Crisps


The warm cookies can be formed into ice-cream cones; or let them cool flat, and serve alongside a dish of fresh berries with whipped cream or ice cream.


  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

  • ½ cup white sesame seeds

  • ¼ cup black sesame seeds

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • Zest of 1/2 orange, about 1 tablespoon

  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper, and set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan, combine confectioners' sugar, butter, honey, and orange juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute.

  3. Remove pan from heat, and stir in remaining ingredients. Cool to room temperature.

  4. Using a 1/2-ounce ice-cream scoop, drop batter onto prepared baking sheets about 4 inches apart. Bake until cookies are crisp and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. To form ice-cream cones, shape warm cookies around a cone-shaped dowel, and place upright in a tall glass to cool. For flat cookies, transfer from baking sheet to a wire rack to cool.
