Baking chopped malt balls into the cookies adds a nice texture to the cookies overall and solves the cringe-worthy, teeth gnashing problem of malt balls by softening them up through baking.

Sesame Seed Cookies or Benne Wafers

Benne Wafers (i.e. sesame seed brittle cookies)

I have to say, I was completely dubious about this recipe for Southern Benne Wafers (which are sesame seed brittle cookies). Not the concept – courtesy of some European travel, I really like sesame seed desserts – but the execution: this calls for 1.5 TABLESPOONS of butter. That seems woefully inadequate, friends. Woefully.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

I love so many things about these dark chocolate coconut macaroons (given that they’re absolutely addicting), but what I think I love most is that it only took me 45 minutes from deciding to make them to having them out of the oven with the dishes done. Boom.
