I know it's the first day of February, but I am already dreaming of spring. While the return of warmer days is still a ways out, these adorable flower-shaped cookies — filled with bright lemon curd — are just what I need to hold me over.
What makes these cookies truly spectacular is the black sesame sugar — a blend of roasted black sesame seeds, granulated sugar, and dark brown sugar. The homemade lemon curd sandwiched between the cookies doesn't hurt, either.
While there are a few time-consuming parts involved in this recipe, it will all be worth it once you're biting into this unique treat.
