Paleo Sesame Wafers

A word of caution: you will want to make these all the time! They are addictive and so easy to make, you can’t help yourself. At least, I couldn’t. I’ve made these four times since I created the recipe and I just cannot get enough.


They make a perfect garnish element or can be devoured (yes devoured, although that’s not too elegant for a garnish) alone. I made them specifically for this Rhubarb Semifreddo, and I keep eating the  “props” every time! 😉

To make them curved: allow to cool about 1 minute out of the oven and then place over a glass or rolling pin. Press into shape and allow to cool completely.

They are best eaten the day they are made or the next day, after which they become chewy.
