I couldnâ€™t stop eating these-love the taste and texture! More of a candy than a cookie--reminds me of rice krispie pinwheel slices. I used 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of dark corn syrup. Sprayed a table knife with cookie spray to do the cutting as it is very gooey. Thanks Mia for sharing. Made for ZWT6.
This recipe is great, I like the idea of using pre-made syrup so you can streamline the process. However, I use 200g of sesame seeds for every 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) of syrup. I followed the recipe except for this. So I used 200g of white toasted sesame seeds, 1/2 cup of syrup, 65 grams of dark brown sugar. (Update: to make it even less gooey, reduce the amount of syrup down to 4 tablespoons and increase the dark brown sugar, doubled. You'll have to play with it. My friend's mom from Nepal had given me this tip so that it would not be gooey - so you can pack it in bags and give them away!)
These tasted like sweet sesame candies and reminded me of one of my favorite dim sum treats. I used light corn syrup. The easiest way I found to flatten the sesame mixture was to roll it out using a rolling pin and the parchment paper. Once I laid the black on top of the white, I rolled them once again. Next time I will roll them up starting at the longest edge to make smaller candies. I plan on wrapping them up reusing the parchment paper so that I can share them with friends tomorrow. Edit: I ended up not wrapping them individually and decided to share them with my second grade students. They LOVED them! Thanks Mia! Made for ZWT 6 Asia by a fellow Unruly under the influence!
Tasty wonderful flavour. I found the mixture very gooey and hard to roll off the parchment paper but boy was it good and I would like to try this again when I get a hold of black sesame seeds. For the syrup I used date molasses/syrup (dibis). Made for ZWT6 Asian region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.
