It is time for another sesame inspired recipe! As you probably know, I am a huge fan of adding sesame to baked goods. Just check out some of previous recipes with sesame seeds/powder:

Peanut butter cookies with a twist 

Black sesame bread

Black sesame macarons

What I love about this black and white sesame cookies is the texture. Because the sesame seeds are mixed within the dough, it adds crunch to every bite! Also don’t forget the add the salt, it balances the sweet sesame flavour really well. Very genius of Caper berry blogger! I didn’t add as much sesame as as the original recipe because I didn’t want the sesame seeds to be too overwhelming. To make up for the flavour, I added about 1 tablespoon of black sesame powder to the flour mixture.
