One weekend, I was in a black sesame mood and went through a number of black sesame recipes. I found this recipe from WendyinKK and it these came out amazingly well. Bold black sesame flavour, light and slight buttery texture of shortbread. Shared these among friends and family and had great feedback too!

Recipe Notes

  • If you can't find black sesame powder, you can grind your own black sesames. Toast the sesame seeds on low heat until fragrant and leave to cool before placing in a food processor.
  • If you don't have salted butter, you can substitute with just less than 1/8 tsp of salt and the same amount of unsalted butter.
