Thought to be a source of good luck, the benne—or sesame seed—with its nutty, almost buttery flavor has long graced many a southern recipe. But none is quite as beloved as the benne wafer. Still made in the same time-honored tradition, these thin crispy cookie wafers combine the nuttiness of benne seeds with the sweetness of maple and brown sugar for a tasty treat that will take your taste buds on a delicious journey to the Deep South. They come in a collectible 6 oz. tin that was introduced some 50 years ago.
