Rintihan Seorang Lelaki Yang Bernama S.U.A.M.I Tangan diangkat dan dirapatkan :::::: ” Ya Tuhan, engkau berikanlah kepada diriku kekuatan untuk memimpin isteri dan anak-anakku, untuk sampai ke syurgaMu. Ya Tuhan, jangan Engkau biarkan aku terus menzalimi diriku dan keluarga. Kau jadikanlah aku seorang suami dan ayah yang baik pada isteri dan anakku. Kau jadikanlah juga isteriku sebagai seorang isteri yg solehah..yang mampu menjadi penyejuk hatiku, yang akan mendamaikan jiwaku. Kau berikanlah dia kekuatan untuk terus dan menerus menjaga anak-anakku. untuk mendidik mereka menjadi anak yg soleh. Kau berikanlah dia ketabahan dan kecekalan dalam mengharungi perjalanan rumahtangga bersamaku. “

Sesame Wafers

Sesame Wafers

~Adapted from At the Baker's Bench for recipe and photos …..~


1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or butter it generously. Cream together butter and brown sugar. (The original recipe claims it will become "light and smooth," but I wouldn't bet on it. I couldn't see 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar getting smooth or light with 16 tablespoons (1 cup) brown sugar mixed into it. I blended mine for a couple of minutes in my stand mixer on speed level 2, with the paddle attachment. "Grainy" is how I'd describe the result.)
Add beaten egg, flour, salt, and vanilla. Beat till smooth. Pour in benne (sesame) seeds and mix until they're evenly distributed.
Using 2 teaspoons (or see my method below), drop dough onto cookie sheet in small mounds, leaving at least 2 inches between them. Flatten the mounds with an offset spatula dipped in ice water. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 6 minutes, until wafers are honey brown and are no longer puffy. Let cool on sheet for a minute or two, then remove to rack to cool completely.
Store wafers in an air-tight metal or plastic container.
