Have you already read about my green tea amaretti biscuits? If not, this is the best chance to get to know their “sisters”. Instead of the slightly bitter green tea  aroma, these little sisters have a tempting nutty flavor of black sesame seeds.

In East Asia, Black sesame is often used to make yummy sweets. Its unique flavor is highly praised by the Chinese and Japanese Cuisine. In addition, these tiny seeds also enjoy a good reputation for extending life and they are also said to contribute to beauty. Delicious, healthy and makes us look beautiful! What else could you want? 😉
