Story Behind this Recipe

I based these on a black sesame cookie recipe from an egg, butter, milk, and sugar-free recipe book. The original recipe called for whole wheat flour and katakuriko, but I didn't have enough whole wheat flour, so I blended it with cake flour. I also added more maple syrup and left out the sesame seeds.
