I had two jars of tahini in my fridge and wanted to find some tahini recipes to use some of it up. So I searched for tahini recipes on the internet and came across these delicious Flourless Tahini Cookies.
The original tahini recipe for the cookies is here but they are made with chocolate. I have been eating a lot of chocolate lately so wanted to try something different.
I had heaps of nuts in my cupboard so used my favourite which are pecans. Yum I love pecans. Since I had some choc bits I decided to top each one with some chocolate. It's only a small amount. As you can see they turned out looking like boobs! Hahahaha, oh well.
They are soft and chewy and incredibly delicious. I will definitely make them again but I think next time much smaller and less erotic looking!
Flourless Tahini Cookies RecipeIngredients
1 cup all natural tahini
1/2 cup of honey
1 tbsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of organic vanilla essence
2 tbsp chopped pecans
Choc chips to top each biscuit
Preheat oven to 180C/350F and line a biscuit tray with baking paper.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until you have a thick and creamy batter.
Place a small scoop of batter per cookie on the tray. Then place a choc bit in the centre of each.
Note these do spread so leave enough space between each, or just make smaller cookies.
Bake for 9-10 minutes, be sure to check the cookies every few minutes as they do cook quickly!
