A surprised gift from Riri: Black Sesame Cookies. It is a type of soft baked cookies; the softness level is just right. Riri spilled his secret baking recipe, he used cake flour instead of all purpose flour. 20140907_203557-1Thatha likes black sesame more than white sesame, because black sesame has stronger nutty flavour. Black Sesame is called Kuro Goma in Japanese, and 黑芝麻 in Chinese. Thatha wanted to add Black Sesame Purin into Java Japa menu, but the cost will be too high. There are so many desserts can be made with black sesame, including: ice cream, mousse cake, madeleines, and so on. blacksesamemadeleines1japanese_cuisine_pic7
