Sesame seed - peanut butter Cookies

This recipe comes from The Spice Cookbook by Avanelle Day and Lillie Stuchey. I picked this cookbook up at a used bookstore a while ago and have only tried a few things from it.
This book is packed with unique recipes.

These little cookies were surprisingly addictive. The sesame and the peanut butter combination was great.

1 Cup Sifted all-purpose flour

1 tsp double-acting baking powder
3 T Toasted Sesame Seed

1/4 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup light-brown sugar
1 large egg

31/2 T Toasted Sesame Seed

Sift together flour and baking powder and mix with the 3 T Toasted Sesame seed. Set aside. Combine the next four ingredients. Add peanut butter and mix well. Gradually add sugar. Beat in egg. Stir in flour mixture.

Drop 1/2-tsp portions of dough. 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle each with 1/4 tsp Toasted Sesame Seed. Bake in a preheated moderate oven. (375) 10 minutes or until edges have lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Store airtight.

Yield: 31/2 dozen cookies
