Regina Cookies

I FINALLY made Frank’s favorite cookie. They may not look great, but they taste delicious. Especially with coffee or tea…yum.

Have you ever had a Regina cookie?

It’s not a sweet cookie. It’s more “flat” tasting, I guess. Which is why it tastes great with coffee. Kind of like biscotti. They’re not my favorite, but like I said, Frank loves them. Just call me a good wifey.

Next time I’m definitely going to coat them with an egg wash to make them look more shiny. I’m not completely happy with the way these look. But, it’s not always about looks, is it 😉

Regina Cookies
from The Cookie Scoop

2 1/4 cups AP flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
6 tablespoons butter, softened, cut into pieces
3/4 cup untoasted sesame seeds
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together until fully combined. Add vanilla and butter and mix on low until incorporated. Add milk and mix on medium until dough comes together.

Scoop small balls of dough and roll into balls about 1 1/4 inch wide. Form into more of a log shape. Wet fingers with water and brush quickly over cookie before rolling in sesame seeds. Place on baking sheet. Repeat for all cookies.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
