Without further ado, here's my recipe.

Makes about 20 small bite-size cookies
1 1/2 tbsp white sesame seed
50g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
30g caster sugar
40g plain / all purpose flour
30g cornflour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
about 2 tbsp finely sliced toasted seaweed / nori

For the egg wash:
1 egg yolk
1 tsp milk

black sesame seeds to sprinkle
coarse sea salt to sprinkle

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°C. Line baking trays with baking paper.

Place white sesame seeds in a small frying pan or saucepan and cook with medium high heat until until the seeds are well-roasted, fragrant and deep golden colour.

Using a wooden spoon or an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar for about 1 min until combined. Do not over-beat butter mixture. Sift flour, corn flour, baking powder and salt into the butter mixture and use a spoon or spatula to mix until the flour mixture is incorporated into the butter mixture.

Add nori and roasted sesame seeds and stir until all are well incorporated. Gather the crumbs and knead until mixture forms a soft pliable dough but do not over-knead! Wrap dough in a plastic wrap and rest for 30 mins at room temperature.

Divide dough into 8g portions and use your hand to roll all divided portions into smooth balls.

Arrange rolled cookie dough onto the prepared baking tray with about 2-3 cm apart. Please be aware that the cookies will spread slightly. Use your hands to flatten the cookie dough slightly.

Use a pastry brush to apply a thin layer of egg wash on the top of the cookies. Sprinkle a pinch of black sesame seeds and sea salt on the cookies and bake for 12 mins, or until the cookies are thoroughly baked being golden brown and crispy.

Leave cookies to cool slightly on the baking tray for 10 mins, then transfer the cookies onto the wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies into an airtight container when they are completely cooled. Store containers at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.

Happy Baking
