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).

Woefully.

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.
