Sesame Cookies

I recently bought a huge can of black sesame seeds and tested this recipe a few times.  I really liked making these cookies and I think you will too.  The roasted black sesame seeds add a little bit of saltiness to the cookie and the cookies are crisp and nutty. I tried a batch with honey, but it was a little too sweet, so I liked the recipe without honey. The milk was added to bind together the ingredients as well as make the cookies slightly chewy in the center.

黒ごまクッキーを作ってみました。レシピは自分で工夫してみました。黒ごまの風味蛾とても香ばしくて美味しいです。ハチミツも入れてみたけど、やっぱりちょっと甘すぎて、入れるのをやめました。
