Can I adapt this easily as a vegetarian or vegan?


Light, melt in the mouth, and so easy to eat. These are very quick and easy to whip up when you have unexpected visitors on the way.


  • 1 egg

  • 110g caster sugar

  • 70g very soft butter or margarine

  • 60g plain flour

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • 175g sesame seeds


Preheat the oven to 180°C

Step One

Whisk the sugar and egg together until pale and fluffy

Step Two

Gradually beat in the butter or margarine 

Step Three

Sift the flour and baking powder together into a separate bowl, and mix in the sesame seeds

Step Four

Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture

Step Five

Spoon half teaspoons of the batter onto a lined baking tray, leaving at least an inch between each mound

Step Six

Bake for 7-10 minutes until golden brown – the biscuits catch very quickly so be careful

Step Seven

Turn off the oven and leave for 5 minutes before removing

Step Eight

Place on a cooling rack, as they cool, the biscuits will firm up and become crunchy
