Tahini and Almond Cookies

The first time I had this was when my colleague made one and let us try it, at first I thought it was a peanut butter cookie it nearly tasted similar but I was surprised when he told us it was made out of tahini. I then asked the ingredients it looks simple enough and I had all of the ingredients at hand so there is no excuses not to make some.

This cookies are really simple, richly flavoured and very fragrant so what are you waiting for try this out as well and you will be surprised.

    These sound and look great Raymund. We just threw out a jar of partially used tahini yesterday as it had gone bad. What’s funny is that we commented how it looked like peanut butter. I think we’ll have to go get a new jar now. 🙂
