Black Sesame Cookies



Remember the emotional coma episode I went through after spotting my first grey hairL.I almost went into a panic mode for next few days doing treasure hunt in my head every morning! Ooopphh
Anyways I have decided to give that a stop for the time being coz I am pretty sure that I am gone find more if I am getting soo worked out by that one silver strand!
So basically I have decided to eat healthy ,stay fit and seriously thinking about coloring my hairJ.



All my resolutions start with a shopping! So obviously my healthy eating resolution also started with one round of shopping. The first thing I got was a bottle of Black Sesame powder
Black sesame is a natural nutrient rich in calcium ,vitamin, dietary fiber, amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids. You can use it as a topping for your cereal or salads, add it to your milk, even make cakes and cookies out of it! You should seriously try the black sesame with Soy milk. It’s awesome.
Now coming to today’s recipe its Black sesame cookies to peace your sweet tooth!

    1. Thank you Priya:-) You can get it in Chinese shops coz it is commonly used in their cuisine. But you can always make it at home, just dry roast and powder once cooled:-)

  14. I keep trying to send a question but my internet is being weird and I don't know if it's going through.
    I'm going to make these and nothing says what temp for the oven. I don't want to waste a batch or two trying to figure it out.
    Please let me know - and thanks for an excellent recipe that I can't wait to try!
