Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

December 18, 2015

My friend Averil introduced me to this variation on peanut butter cookies she found while trying to use up a jar of tahini. The tahini flavor is more subtle than peanut butter but it makes a good substitute.

Beat together:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 cup softened butter
Stir in:
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Add 1 cup chocolate chips

Shape dough into 1 1/4″ balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 min. Remove from oven and use a fork dipped in sugar to gently flatten the balls. Return to oven for 1-2 minutes, until very light brown.

Makes 12
