I've baked some black sesame cookies on Saturday.
It's very tasty but a bit sweet to me.
I think I'll reduce the sugar next time if I bake it again although my family said it's alright.
I'm now baking muffins for my breakfast.
I can't believe I can keep it up, this is the 3rd week I'm having muffins.
Well, I try not to have the same favour every time.
Back to college tomorrow~~~ end of holiday -____-
100g butter (unsalted)
190g plain flour
120g sugar (reduced to 110g might be better)
soda 1/2 tsp
70g black sesame seeds
1. Grind 40g black sesame seeds into powder.
2. Butter (softened) + sugar, beat until smooth.
3. Add egg & mix well.
4. Add sieved plain flour, soda & black sesame powder & mix well.
5. Add 30g of black sesame seeds & mix well.
6. Put it in the fridge for 30 min.
7. Roll into small sized balls, place 5 cm apart, flatten slightly.
8. Bake at 170'C for 15 - 20 min.
I didn't grind the black sesame seeds, instead I got it from a Japanese grocery shop called Rice Wine Shop in Soho.
The black sesame seeds can be replaced with the white ones because it's available in most supermarkets.
Well, I tried this recipe before with almond powder (60g) & white sesame seeds (20g).
I forgot to take a photo before eating it all.
It tasted the same, but I forgot to reduce the sugar this time when I used black sesame seeds.
