    This was good. My husband loved them because they weren't too sweet. I thought 3/4 c. sesame seeds seemed like way too much so I only used 1/4 c. Next time I might not even use that much.  -  12 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've made these several times. They're really good and I always halve the sugar. For variety I've tried adding almond slivers, coarsely chopped nuts and chopped cranberries. So far all have turned out good. Better than store bought definitely but you've got to tweak it to your liking. To SueB, if you reduce the sugar by too much it can get crumbly coz sugar is the binding agent here. What I did was to spread the dough out thinner and it became crispier. But because I halved the sugar, I replaced 2 tbps of the oats with 2 tbps of corn flour to help bind the cookie. Mine have always turned out all right. To those who think this is not healthy because there is too much butter, actually, from what I've read, butter is a lot healthier than margarine and spreads that are mostly made from hydrogenated oils. This recipe baked with added fruits and served with a glass of milk will be a very nutritious breakfast or snack for anyone young or old.  -  07 Feb 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wrong name for this cookie! Sesame crumbles is mostly what I got! These are easy to make. They taste great! The cookies on the outside edges of the pan were somewhat crisp, but in the middle, they crumbled. I'll make them again if I can find a way to get the panful to all be crispy!  -  18 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
