Salted peanut and sesame biscuits

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 26 people

These are simple and super-easy to have on hand. For a quick dessert, they also make a very tasty ice-cream sandwich - try coconut or vanilla ice-cream.

  • 220 gm (1 cup) brown sugar
  • 60 gm softened butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 75 gm (½ cup) plain flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 70 gm roasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 70 gm (½ cup) roasted salted peanuts
01   Beat sugar and butter until pale (2-3 minutes), then beat in egg. Add flour, baking powder and ½ teaspoon fine sea salt, and beat to combine. Stir in sesame seeds and peanuts. Refrigerate until firm (1 hour).
02   Preheat oven to 160C and line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, place on trays and press lightly to flatten. Bake, swapping trays halfway, until golden and crisp (12-15 minutes). Cool on trays for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack. Biscuits will keep for 2 days in an airtight container.
