Yikes, going thru my cookie list from last year, I see I've forgotten to review this recipe. My apologies for that, but not for these delicious little cookies. They were easy to make and really very tasty. The recipe did not sound the least bit "odd" to me, but intriguing and I am so glad to have tried them. I am making them again and they are in my permanent cookbook! My only change was to add more sesame seeds too.
All I did to "personalize" this was add additional sesame seeds because I like them. They go really well with peanut butter. Makes for a real nice twist to a regular peanut butter cookie.
