Hubby and I both love sesame seeds and enjoyed them this new way. Only drawback is that they seemed pretty lean on sesame seeds. Next time I'm going to add 1 cup and see how they turn out. It m...

The doctor told me that sesame seeds are a very good source of calcium- a tablespoon a day is what he recommended. This recipe is a delicious way to incorporate them into your diet! Be careful...

Liked this one. The kids and hubby too. I used mini muffin tins since my Pyrex dish is (still) missing, it made 32 total. Also, added extra sesame seeds per others reviews. Browns quickly.....

nice texture! I really enjoyed this recipe.

Excellent bars! Very easy and quick to make. I followed the recipe adding a sprinkle of powdered sugar to the finished product. They are very reminiscent of a peanut butter bar. Enjoyed by all.

It wasn't what I was expecting, but it still tasted good. The only thing I changed/added was cashew nuts. Since the cashew nuts were salted I omitted the salt from the recipe.

Not too bad but not what I expected. I think I would have like the cookies rolled in the toasted sesame seeds as opposed to the seeds being IN the cookie.

Lo ve Sesame anything....these were wonderful
