Open Sesame!

Sexy Sesame Tamari Biscuits

These rootin’, tootin’ gluten free numbers are just the ticket when you feel like a cheesy snack ‘cos they taste just like those commercial bickies you get from the shops!

I’ve  altered Jody Vassallo‘s recipe from her great book “Wheat and gluten free”. Allow the dough to rest a little as it will help the flavours to really develop a cheesy taste without dairy – how good’s that?! Be sure to make yourself a double batch.

Sexy sesame and tamari biscuits                                                            Makes 10

100 grams gluten free flour
70 grams rice flour
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds, lightly toasted
70 ml macadamia oil
50 ml boiling water
1 tablespoon gluten free tamari

  • Preheat oven to 200 C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
  • In a large bowl, combine flours and sesame seeds
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together oil, water and tamari and slowly add to the dry mixture
  • Knead into a dough for a few minutes – you may need a little more oil or water
  • Form dough into a ball, place in a bowl and cover with a tea towel and allow to stand for 30 minutes at room temperature
  • If the dough is pliable, roll it out between two sheets of baking paper or place about a tablespoon of mixture into round biscuit cutters and press the dough firmly in to form a circle
  • Remove biscuit cutter carefully. Repeat until you have used all the mixture
  • Bake at 200 C for 10 minutes then cool on a wire rack
