    These are absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for the recipe. Made them with coconut oil instead of butter and I cut down sugar for 30 g (I converted the ingredients in metric measures). They turned out amazing. I wonder how they would turn out if substitute egg with “chia egg”.. will let you know if I try them for my vegan friends.

    Wow, these are unbelievably delicious – and I don’t even like sesame seeds! I made 53 wafers, and the cooking time was only 8-9 minutes.

    I too love/hate you for this addicting recipe. I add a tablespoon of molasses to the recipe instead of vanilla. We ate these in Charleston and we’re addicted to them. Found your recipe and have been making double recipes ever since. I keep a container of them in the freezer at all times.

    Whole Foods has sesame seeds in bulk, too.

    Here where I live in Mexico City, amaranth is readily available and is practically a staple ingredient of traditional snacks and baked goods. It’s got a subtle nutty flavor and tons of fiber and protein. Substituting half of the benne seeds for puffed amaranth in this recipe worked great, yielding a somewhat lighter cookie than the original (both in flavor and texture). I’ve also substituted the wheat flour for amaranth with good results. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
