Tahini Cookies or Sesame Flavoured Cookies

Posted in Cakes and Cookies

If you like the taste of Sesame or Halva, you will LOVE these. When we used to own a restaurant I made these cookies and they were a hit. Not only that they melt in your mouth, they are also easy to make. Only 4 ingredients and you’re done. I made these a couple of days ago, I baked 3 batches of 24 cookie sheets and guess what, I have about 5 left in the cookie jar. Now, if that doesn’t mean something I’m not sure what does.
