New Hampshire Seed Cookies

This recipe was sent to me by Ruth Donogh, of Anacortes, Washington. Ruth is the family historian, and is researching the geneaology of the Donogh family in North America. She found me through the internet, and we’ve been corresponding ever since! Ruth says: “This is a recipe that my mother, who was a wonderful cook, gave me many years ago. I like it because I love sesame seeds and I think it is a little unique. And because it is easy. I usually double the recipe, so you know they are enjoyed.”
