These kinako, blueberry and sesame cookies are a gluten-free tea-time treat, perfect with a cup of green tea.
Ingredients
  • 100g salted butter
  • 50g muscovado sugar
  • 5g sesame seeds
  • 25g dried blueberries
  • 130g kinako (roasted soybean) flour
  • 2tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 25g icing sugar
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees (celsius).
  2. Whip the butter and sugar until creamy, then fold the egg in gently.
  3. Add the kinako, baking powder, blueberries and sesame (saving some of the seeds for later).
  4. On a lined baking tray, separate the batter into balls, and top with the remaining sesame seeds.
  5. Pop the cookies into the oven for 15 minutes, until the sesame seeds have toasted.
  6. Place on a baking tray to cool, but be careful as they are very crumbly!
  7. Once the cookies have slightly cooled, top with icing sugar.
