There are different versions of this recipe out there. And some recipes call them wafers. The one I use, I copied from one of my Mom's cookbooks. I don't know who to credit, but just know that this is not my own recipe.
Benne Seed Cookies
3/4 cup butter
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1-1/4 cups flour
1/4 teas. baking powder
1 teas. vanilla
1/2 cup toasted benne seed
Cream together butter and sugar. Mix in eggs. Stir together the flour and baking powder, add to mixture and blend well. Stir in vanilla and benne seeds. Drop by teaspoonful far enough apart to allow for spreading. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for a minute before transferring them to a cooling rack.
|The sesame seeds I have are roasted already, but if yours aren't you will need to toast them to bring out the flavor.|
|I bake them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I leave about 2 inches in between cookies.|
