Rolled Benne Wafers

Recipe from


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Dash of salt
1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted


Combine butter, corn syrup, sugar, and vanilla in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter melts. Add flour and salt; stir until well blended. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in sesame seeds. Place pan in a bowl of hot water.

Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375° for 5 minutes.

Remove from oven, and let stand for 1 minute. Shape each wafer around the buttered handle of a wooden spoon. Slide off, and place on a wire rack to cool completely. (Bake only 5 wafers at a time because they harden quickly after baking.) Repeat procedure with remaining batter. Store wafers in airtight containers.
