Benne wafers

My dad loves benne wafers. (really thin wafer-like cookies mainly consisting of sesame seeds, for those of you not from the South.)

I try to make some for him every Christmas, and I've tried several different recipes over the years. Some were fab, others were drab. Others stuck to the baking sheet so horrifically we might as well have eaten seeds.

Problem is, I haven't kept track of what worked and what didn't. Anyone have a recipe or tip? Thanks y'all!
