I’m looking for some variety in my baked goods. I’m not sure why I’m so bored of chocolate chip cookies and standard flavors such as vanilla. Perhaps it’s all the time I spend exploring on the Internet. Yes, that could be it.
I see apricot, rhubarb, mocha, green tea, red bean and…black sesame. I came across these cookies towards the end of last year and had every intention of making them for the holidays. That didn’t happen, so I revisited the goal this weekend.
I’m a big black sesame fan, and if you like anything with a slightly nutty flavor, you will be too. I adapted the recipe from one of my favorite food bloggers, Green Cilantro. Ideal with coffee, tea, or milk, these cookies are only slightly sweet; perfect for an afternoon snack or post-run treat, whatever the case may be.
