    Concert Lady's Note:

    Maw Maw Vincent made this specialty. She was a Cajun Lady from Lyons Point, La. We would go visit, and she would WHIP us up a batch. This recipe came from generations of long ago. Once the candy was made, she excitedly would hurry up and serve us a piece. She had a UNIQUE way. She would use no utensils. She would grab a section and just pull apart a serving size and LITTERALLY slam dunk it into our waiting We had to hold on tight to our plates not to drop the treat. When the name sesame seed is mentioned, we can't help but think of her.<smile>
