Benne Seed Wafers

1 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 c softened butter
2 c brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 c sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large skillet, toast the sesame seeds lightly then cool.
Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together. In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add the sesame seeds. Grease a cookie sheet. Drop by teaspoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes in upper 1/3 of the oven - only a sheet at a time. Let cool for 1 minute, then gently but briskly scrape up the wafers with a spatula and let cool on racks. (note: you might want to use greased parchment paper or a silpat liner with this recipe)
