Sesame Seed Cracker Cookies

OK, although we've provided some great hints and tips on seed starting, some of you might not be interested in growing your own little seedlings... well, here's an alternative. These simple Sesame Seed Cracker Cookies are easy to make and were one of the original treats served in the early days of The Rosemary House when our Mother held tea parties in the garden in an effort to promote the business. Today we kicked-off the 40th Anniversary celebration of The Rosemary House with a tea party hosted at Sweet Remembrances. These little cracker cookies were one of the dessert items.
Sesame Seed Cracker Cookies
Keebler's Club Crackers or Waverly Wafer
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar
sesame seeds (substitute poppy seeds, caraway, fennel, anise or lovage seeds)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and brown sugar. Spread on the crackers. Place crackers on a foil lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds. Bake for 8 minutes, or until brown and bubbly. Allow to cool before storing in an air tight tin.
Recipe from Mrs. Reppert's TwelveMonth Herbal, Remembrance Press, 1996
