Simple Sesame Cookies

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sesame seed
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped almonds

In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add flour and mix just until combined. Stir in sesame seed, coconut and almonds just until well-mixed. Divide dough into thirds. Place one third on long sheet of wax paper. Shape into a long roll 2 inches in diameter. Wrap and refrigerate until firm. Repeat this twice more with other two portions.

Preheat oven to 300°.

Cut rolls into 1/4-inch slices. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 30 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
