After baking at health-food stores, Sarah Kelby Lewis created Sustenance, her line of sweets that uses alternative sugars, which she sells at Pittsburgh’s Public Market.

  1. 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  2. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  6. 1/2 cup evaporated cane sugar
  7. 1/2 cup Sucanat sugar (see Note)
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  10. 1 cup toasted sesame seeds (4 ounces)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. In a small bowl, whisk the flours, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Beat in the sugars then beat in the egg and vanilla. Beat in the sesame seeds and the dry ingredients.
  2. Scoop tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheets and roll into balls; press into 2-inch rounds. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden. Let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.

Sucanat is available at health food stores.
