This cookie recipe is adapted from my go-to peanut butter cookie recipe. I think I like it better sesame style with tahini!

Instructions Checklist

  • Cream butter, tahini, brown sugar, and white sugar together with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Pour in egg and almond extract; mix to combine.

  • Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Mix into butter mixture until just combined.

  • Pour sesame seeds into a shallow bowl. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls. Roll balls in sesame seeds to lightly coat. Place on 2 ungreased cookie sheets; drizzle with honey.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Cook's Notes:

You can use vanilla extract instead of almond, if preferred.

Roll cookies in a mixture of equal parts white sugar and sesame seeds instead of drizzling with honey for a cleaner cookie, or roll cookies in black sesame seeds for a prettier cookie.

These are a light cookie with a crunchy edge slightly chewy middle and a nice almond-sesame flavor. I made half a recipe and got exactly 24 cookies using a 1" cookie scoop. Bakes for 9 minutes. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
