Tahini, Honey and Cranberries Cookies

Adina Elena Vladulescu
Tahini is a paste made of sesame seeds often used in Middle Eastern cooking and baking. It adds a creamy, savory taste to the cookies, that balances beautifully with the honey and cranberries. Overall, it is an easy and quick recipe that only requires a handful of ingredients! It is also naturally gluten-free.

Servings 12 cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 1/1 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup honey*
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Handful of cranberries

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, whisk the almond flour with the baking soda and salt.
  • In a large bowl, mix the honey with the tahini and the vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and then the cranberries. Stir until well incorporated.
  • Refrigerate for 10-30 minutes while preheating the oven to 350°F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cooling down the dough will make it easier to manipulate.
  • Using your hands, form small balls. Roll them into the sesame seeds and transfer on a baking sheet. Using a spatula or the bottom of a glass, press the balls down to form cookies about 1 cm thick.
  • Bake for 8 minutes. Let them cool down for a few minutes and then dive right into them!

Notes

*You can substitute maple syrup for honey in this recipe. The dough will be more runny so you can simply drop a scoop of dough on the baking sheet and the cookies will spread by themselves. If not, add more almond flour until a more consistent but still sticky dough is obtained.
