RECIPE FOR SALTED BENNE WAFERS
Title:Salted Benne Wafers
Category:Snacks
Salted Benne Wafers

African slaves introduced sesame seeds into this country as "bennes."

1 cup sesame seeds
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup lard or shortening
1/4 pound butter, chilled, cut into 8 pieces
1 egg, beaten
2 to 3 tablespoons ice water
1 tablespoon sea salt

Toast sesame seeds until golden brown in a skillet or slow oven, 4 to 8 minutes. Mix flour with the seasonings. Work in lard and butter with your fingertips as if making pie crust. Beat egg with 2 tablespoons ice water. Mix flour and liquid lightly with a fork. Add sesame seeds and more water, if needed, to make dough barely stick together. Put dough into a plastic bag and shape it into a long roll about 1 inch wide. The easiest shape is a squared roll. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.

Cut roll into 1/4-inch slices and place them on a baking sheet. They will not spread, so you can place them close together. Bake at 325 degrees F on top rack of oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle them with sea salt while still warm.

Makes about 30 wafers.
