Tahini cookies loaded with lemon flavor, oreos and chocolate chunks
Can you believe I wouldn’t make peanut butter treats solely because I didn’t want to deal with the sticky, gooey mess of cleaning the spoon and measuring cup?
In desperate times, I just got a big spoon and estimated the needed amount.
& then, pb and me had a falling out. I guess it was payback for ignoring it so long (but just in baking – not in smoothies or sandwiches!)
One day I went to get some for snacking purposes and the pb had a weird smell. I was trying a new brand – so I thought maybe that was the problem. Then I went to my favorite brand and it had the smell too, and the taste wasn’t any better – uhh!
Well, I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I’ve been turning to other nut butters until my sitch gets resolved.
So, when I was contacted about trying Sesame King Tahini – I was all in! Of course, I use tahini all the time when cooking, but have never baked with it. I had some leftover oreo crumbs from the Chocolate Peppermint Pie and thought it would make the perfect accompaniment to Tahini Cookies.
I recommend enjoying these the day after baking, unless you are a die hard tahini fan. For me, the taste was a little strong, but as the cookies aged, they were super delicious!
In search for a Tahini brand? Although I haven’t tested it in hummus, dressing, etc., I highly recommend Sesame King Tahini, at least for the packaging. Typically, when I open a new jar of tahini, I spill the oil when stirring it. With Sesame King, the tahini is not filled up all the way to the top, making it easier to stir. Also, this tahini is available in lots of different flavors, which is awesome. There is light roasted, roasted, cajun, garlic, honey and olive oil.
Wanna try a couple of flavors? Well, you’re in luck. Enter the giveaway below for a chance to win two jars of tahini, in your choice of flavors.
