Sesame Thins - a taste of home

My mom used to make these cookies periodically.  I made a batch for some friends recently and thought I would post the recipe here.  These are very addictive cookies!

Sesame Thins

2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 cup Butter or Margarine (2 sticks)
1 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 pkgs. Sesame Seeds (2 oz. each)

Sift: Flour, baking soda & salt into small bowl.
Cream: Butter with sugar until fluffy in a large bowl; beat in egg & vanilla.
Stir In: Flour mixture, half at a time. Blend well to make a soft dough. Wrap in waxed paper & chill seveal hours or until firm enough to handle.
Roll: Roll dough a teaspoon at a time into small balls & roll sesame seeds in a plate to coat lightly. Place 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake: in a moderate oven @ 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until delicately golden. Remove and cool completely. Makes 8 dozen.
