Butter Pecan Brittle Ice Cream

Y’all. I think Ample Hills Creamery has ruined me for ice cream.  It’s just so good. And this butter pecan brittle ice cream is downright wrong in its rightness.

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.
