Black Sesame Biscuits with Coconut and Lemon

You may or may not be aware that I love black sesame seeds, I  put them in everything I can (that is sensible at least). Check out the Black sesame seed and kale smoothie, or the Broccoli and Cauliflower salad, or the Spicy seed and kale cracker, savoury, sweet and everything in between, these make their way into pretty much any dish in my kitchen. 


Look, everyone has their weakness, mine just so happen to be something healthy and addictive.  

I coined these little sweet treats biscuits, because I didn't know what else to call them. They are not sesame snaps! much softer with a chewy centre but crunchy around the edges. I got 12 biscuits out of this recipe, the amount you get will depend on how thick you make them. 

Fear not my gluten, nuts and lactose intolerant foodies these beauties are free from those yucky irritants, so tuck in!!

These tempting morsels are a delight with a nice pot of tea and a good book or good company - they were made for sharing. But, perhaps after trying one you might not want to.

Preparation

Beat the egg whites till frothy, add the icing sugar and whisk till sugar dissolves. The mixture should form a soft peak, and have a thick, glossy look. Then add in the lemon zest and combine well.

Leave the mixture to rest 30 minutes in the fridge. 

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, line a cookie tray with parchment paper (I use a silicon baking mat). 

Remove the sesame mix from the fridge after 30 minutes, ready for use. Fill a cup with water and dip the spoon in between forming each biscuit, taking tablespoons full of the mixture and spread out to the thickness you want.

Bake in batches 10-15 minutes at time, 10 minutes will give a chewier texture, 15 minutes will make them more crunchy all over.
