These Italian Sesame Seed Cookies, originally known as Giuggiulena, are a traditional recipe passed down for generations. Made with anise oil and sesame seeds, these crunchy cookies are comparable to biscotti, another traditional Italian cookie. The recipe is very easy to follow. It can be a little time-consuming, but the end result will make it worth the effort. While usually a holiday treat, these cookies can be enjoyed any time of the year. Try dipping these cookies into a cup of milk or a mug of coffee for an extra special treat first thing in the morning.
