  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • sesame seeds
For the dough:
In a mixer bowl mix together all the ingredients to a soft butter.

Cover the dough and refrigerate for one hour.

Heat oven to 350 degree,
line 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

Take a piece of dough tennis ball sized and roll it into a rope. Pinch the ends of the rope together to form a ring. Repeat until all the dough has been formed into rings.

To glaze the cookies:
Whisk the egg and then brush each ring with the beaten egg, pour the sesame seeds on the top of the cookies. Place the rings seeds side up.

Bake rings until lightly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer from baking sheet and cool on wire racks.
