We have a tradition in our family that we don’t do cards for birthdays. We buy a chocolate bar or some lollies, you know, something edible rather than a card that may just get thrown away anyway.
Father’s Day and Mother’s Day also fall in to this category, so this year I baked I baked for my daddy!
Using my grandmother’s trusty choc chip cookie recipe, I used a combo I had been meaning to try for ages – black sesame and white chocolate.
Black Sesame and White Chocolate Cookies
Makes 28-32 cookies
45g black sesame paste
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
150g roughly chopped white chocolate buttons
75g black sesame powder
Preheat oven to 170.
Cream butter, black sesame paste, sugar and vanilla. When fluffy, add egg and mix until combined.
Sift in flour, sesame powder and salt, and stir gently. Mix in the white chocolate until distributed evenly.
Bake for around 10-12 minutes until lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack.
