These tahini cookies are always a hit - try for yourself and let us know what you think!


INGREDIENTS 
1/2 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
1/2 c (1 stick) butter 
1/4 c sugar 
1 1/4 c brown sugar 
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c Seed + Mill Halva (we like using our Toasted Sesame flavor best, but any flavor will work!)  
1 egg 
1 tsp vanilla 
1 1/3 c flour 
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp sea salt flakes 


STEPS
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F. In a stand mixer, combine butter, tahini, sugar. Turn on to medium speed and beat until smooth. Add egg, vanilla and increase speed, beating until fluffy. Turn off the mixer and add flour, baking soda, baking powder and mix on low speed until combined. Lastly, using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips and halva. 
2. Scoop balls of dough on parchment lined baking sheets and sprinkle sea salt over dough. Bake for 10-14 mins until golden and tops are crackly. We always give the baking sheet a bang on the counter while the cookies are still hot, to increase the crackliness!  


Dough will freeze well for up to 6 months. We ALWAYS make a double batch to keep for next time!

The frosting for this recipe is especially unique in that it combines tahini with mastic, an indigenous plant based gum grown in Greece. The piney scent of the mastic, together with the earthy tahini cuts through the sweetness of the frosting, giving this cake an indulgent topping that we couldn't stop eating! The mixing bowl was literally licked clean.....
