Black Sesame Butter & Mango Linzer Cookies (Vegan)

This is my ode to some of my favorite things: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cookies, and East and South Asian flavors. I thought of this recipe because I ate pb&js for lunch from first grade until twelfth grade, and of the two ingredients, I was always more of a peanut butter person. When I got to college in New York City, I was exposed to the most adult form of nutty flavors I had ever tasted: black sesame. The addition of mango in this recipe is to represent my South Asian roots as well as another flavor I (regrettably) only started to enjoy in adulthood: mango. (Don’t worry, it eventually made it into the top three fruits of all time for me, which is actually a huge honor).
