Step 1

In a food processor

Step 2

Process the black sesame seeds, sugar and salt until the mixture forms tiny clumps, about 3 minutes.

Scrape the bowl and add the flour.

Step 4

Pulse until the flour is evenly incorporated with the seeds into a sandy mixture.

Step 5

Add the butter and vanilla

Step 6

And pulse until the mixture goes from coarse crumbs to large clumps.

Step 7

Transfer to a sheet of plastic wrap and firmly squeeze, and roll into a 2-inch-diameter log.

Wrap tightly and refrigerate overnight

Step 9

When ready to bake

Step 10

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F

Step 11

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 12

Cut the chilled log into ⅓-inch-thick slices and place on the prepared sheets, spacing ½ inch apart. If any bits of dough crumble off while slicing, pat them back into the rounds.

Bake, switching the positions of the sheets halfway through, until the edges are brown and the tops golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
