INGREDIENTS:

         2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

         1 teaspoon baking soda

         3/4 teaspoon salt

         1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

         3/4 cup packed brown sugar

         3/4 cup granulated sugar

         1 large egg

         1 large egg yolk

         1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

         3/4 to 1 teaspoon of Little Soya Soy Sauce 

            2 tablespoons black sesame seeds

         1 cup dark chocolate chips

         About 1/4 cup black sesame seeds for rolling and coarse sea salt for topping

Directions:

 1. Place racks in the center and upper third of the oven and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape down the butter mixture with a spatula. Add the egg and egg yolk and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in the vanilla and soy sauce. Stop the mixer and add the dry ingredients, all at once to the butter mixture. Beat on low speed until just combined. Stop the mixer, add the sesame seeds and chocolate chunks, and fold together with a spatula until well combined. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 45 minutes.

 4. Just before you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350°F.

5. Place about 1/4 cup black sesame seeds in a small bowl.

6.
 Scoop cookie dough by the heaping tablespoonful into your hand. Roll into a ball, and toss around in the black sesame seeds. The dough balls don’t need to be completely covered in seeds, just coated well. Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for about 12 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the oven, allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container. Cookies will last for a day or two. The oils on the seeds can tend to go rancid. These cookies are best eaten within a few days.

Little Soya finds a new home!

The latest buzz that has the entire Little Soya executive team and staff excited about? First off, let me share with you our executive team has been growing by leaps and bounds!  It’s really a great feeling to see our years of hard work coming to fruition right in front of our eyes.

 

And, we’re proud to say we’ll be moving into our new offices this Friday! We’ll be located on 290, just off the freeway – at 10900 Northwest Freeway, Suite 208, Houston, Texas 77092. All I know is now it will be even easier to work together to discuss our future plans of soy sauce global domination all over the world!
 
What are your thought and opinions? Do you prefer the work office environment? Or are you well disciplined enough to work from home?
 
Some believe that quality and speed are often sacrificed when you work from home, and that physically being together is more productive. But others can argue that maybe working from home can be more efficient, whereas you don’t have to waste time in traffic, reduces the company’s real estate costs, and improves employee morale. 
 
What do we think?? Little Soya staff believes that there isn’t a clear distinction between work and home… we’re constantly running around making sure all of our beloved fans and supporters have Little Soya when and wherever they need it:) WE LOVE OUR JOBS and hope you love yours too! 
 
Peace, Love, & Soy Sauce
