Sesame Cookies (Benne Wafers)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by AcadiaTwo

I think this recipe was attached to a box of Benne Wafers that my parents brought me back from Charleston, SC back in 1991. I have never made them myself, but I remember the wafer to be very tasty.

DH LOVES these! I think they're a bit too sweet. I made the mistake of using butter that was too soft so they spread too much but mine look a lot like the photo above. I love the flavor of sesame....very nice with tea. :) Made for Veggie Swap 7/11.
