Sesame Seed Benne Wafers tied in Twine

Celebrate Kwanzaa with these popular sesame style Benne wafers. A toasted sesame taste mixed with salty sweetness creates a crunchy bite that will leave you craving for more!


1 cup sesame seeds

3/4 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Start by browning the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Avoid burning by stirring occasionally, and only cooking for a few minutes. OR place sesame seeds on an ungreased baking sheet and toast them for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.

In a large bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, baking powder egg, melted butter, vanilla extract, salt and sesame seeds together. Mix together until it is well combined.

Lightly grease a baking sheet. Use a 1/2 teaspoon to measure your wafer size. Place the dough at least 1 to 2 inches apart as they will expand into one another.

Place baking sheet into heated oven, and cook for about 4-6 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Let the wafers cool for a few minutes before removing them from the baking sheet. Then place them on a cooling rack to completely cool them.

Be sure to store you Benne wafers in an airtight container to ensure freshness and avoid an overly crisp bite.

Serve your wafers as a snack, dessert, or gift to friends or family. Happy eating!
