The recipe for the thumbprint cookies bring some Asian flare to the often jelly-filled desserts. Created by Adrianna Adarme at the food blog A Cozy Kitchen, the homemade black sesame cookies with lemon curd are a tart take on a bakery staple.

While they might not necessarily look appetizing, the Halloween-appropriate treats incorporate black sesame paste, which can be found at many Asian grocery stores. Similar to black tahini paste, the black sesame ingredient pairs wonderfully with the lemon curd. You can make your own from scratch (using Meyer lemons or not), or simply buy it ready-made. You can even sprinkle some black sesame seeds on top of the curd to really amplify the flavor and add an interesting garnish.
