Benne wafers are traditional cookies from Charleston, SC made with benne (sesame) seeds. Bite-sized and crunchy, they make excellent tea cookies and are ideal for wedding or shower favors or Christmas gifts! This easy, old fashioned Southern recipe will give you that unique, traditional South Carolina Lowcountry flavor you’re looking for!
The recipe I adapted from says it makes 4 dozen cookies at 1/2 teaspoon each. I got 14 dozen cookies at (scant) 1/2 teaspoon each. I'm sure the scant half teaspoon allows for some of the difference, but creaming the butter longer until it's extra fluffy may make the rest of the difference in quantity.
