A recipe – Tahini Cookies

After the last post I felt so guilty. So much butter and sugar... Oh!
So this time - healthy cookies!
If you have a food processor, it takes just five minutes, if not, it will take 10 minutes ...
And it is tasty! Very much!

Ingredients yield: about 30 cookies
½ cup of Tahini (not the pre-make salad…)
1 stick (100 gr.) unsalted butter, softened
½ cup of sugar (white / light brown)
2 tablespoon milk (Soy / Cow)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup of all-purpose flour
¾ cup of whole-wheat flour

1.     In a large mixing bowl (or – in a food processor), stir together the tahini and butter; add all the other ingredients, and keep mixing until well blended.
2.     Form balls the size of walnuts and place them on a baking sheet protected with baking paper. The dough is dry and crumbly, so squeeze it together to make the balls.
3.     [I like these cookies nice and round, so after I placed them on the baking sheet, I cut them with a top of a glass (or cooking ring)]
4.     Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).
5.     Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cookies have turned light gold. Be aware not to bake the cookies too much, it can affect their flavor. Cool on a rack.
