Black Sesame Cookies

Black Sesame Cookies

As I was experimenting and expanding my palate for sweets, I was reminded of sesame ice cream and thought why not use black sesame in cookies! Viola! This makes for an exceptional cookie that keeps the deep flavour and aroma. 

An excellent pairing of East meets West if you ask me!

Baking Tips

  • Prevent pie dough from sticking

    After crimping the edge of the pie crust, lift the edge of the crust gently all around with your fingers. This keeps the dough from sticking to the dish while baking and makes it easier to take out the pieces of pie.
