[RECIPE] Black Sesame Totoro Cookies

I bought a lot of cookie cutters at the beginning of this year, and I finally had a chance to use two of my favourite ones – Chibi-Totoro and O-Totoro. These cookies are super easy to make, with simple ingredients. It has a nice crisp, with a nutty flavor from the black sesame.

Many of you asked where I got these cute cookie cutters. I got them from Taobao, and I bought all my cookie cutters from this shop in Taobao. If you don’t have access to Taobao, you can simply search “totoro cookie cutter” at Etsy.ca. They have many different styles, and most are free shipping.
