What could be better?
Recipe for Benne Wafers:
1 Cup brown sugar
4 TBLSP butter (1/2 stick)
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 Cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg. Mix together the dry ingredients and slowly add to the butter mixture. Drop by teaspoonfuls about an inch apart onto a well greased cookie sheet or parchment paper so they have room to spread. Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes.
Unfortunately, they didn't taste too good to me. Or my husband. I even found 2 on the floor, when the cat obviously jumped up on the counter and knocked them down so he could eat them...but he didn't so I guess he didn't even like them. In my research these are supposed to be thin so I think these were too big. The flavor of the sesame seeds was too overpowering. If I ever tried to make these again, I might cut the amount of seeds and I would definitely try to make them more wafer like instead of cookie like.
The Restorer was the first time I had ever heard of Benne Wafers. Have you ever come across them before? If so please share!
