Fast and Easy Israeli Tahini Cookies
A quick and simple Middle Eastern/Mediterranean hit. I've seen both little Jewish grandmothers in Jerusalem make these cookies and Bedouin women living in the middle of the desert. A great simple recipe that isn't too sweet, is very versatile and fast. Enjoy.
Recipe Summary test
Eggs are omitted in the traditional recipe for religious dietary reasons, but feel free to add them. One egg will make the cookies stronger while warm and two eggs will give them more bite and body.
Honey or brown sugar can be used in place of the white sugar.
Nuts, dried fruit, or vanilla extract can also be added to the batter.
It is very important to let the cookies cool all the way. They are very fragile when they come out of the oven.
