Recipe type: Dessert
Barazek is an Iranian food recipe of a popular middle east cookie from sesame seeds.
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ to ¾ cup water or milk
  • 2 tbsp pistachios, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  2. Place sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer seeds to a medium mixing bowl and combine with honey. Mix well, adding a tbsp. or so of water if the mixture is too dry and sticky to stir easily, and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter together. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Using your hands, blend well, adding enough water or milk to make a soft, smooth dough.
  4. Form dough into walnut-sized balls. Dip one side of a ball into pistachios. Place on a greased baking sheet, pistachio-side down. Use the flat bottom of a water glass dipped in flour to flatten the ball. Sprinkle with sesame seed mixture, pressing with glass so seeds stick firmly. Repeat with remaining dough and sesame seeds.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
