This recipe also works with our Asian Style Sprinkle in place of Oregon Trail Juniper Berry Spice. For a sweet-only version, leave out the spice blend; use only the seeds and add ½ Tbsp. vanilla extract to the wet ingredients. Also works with a mix of white and black sesame seeds.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast seeds in a small skillet over medium heat for 3 to 5 min. until fragrant, stirring frequently. Combine toasted seeds, flour, salt, baking soda and Oregon Trail in a medium bowl. In a separate large bowl, combine sugar, melted butter and egg. Fold dry ingredients into wet sugar mixture. Using a teaspoon or small melon scoop, drop balls of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. These will really spread, so place no more than 12 on a large baking sheet. [Tip: It will take multiple rounds of baking to get through all the dough. Let baking sheets cool between rounds before loading up the next round or the dough will melt and affect the texture.] Bake for 5 to 6 min. until browned and set. Remove from oven and let cool slightly on baking sheet, then transfer wafers to cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
