  • 1-Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Sheet

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • 2-Mix Wet Ingredients:

    In a large bowl, combine tahini, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir well until the mixture is smooth.

  • 3-Add Dry Ingredients

    Sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until just combined. The dough will be thick and sticky.

  • 4-Shape Cookies

    Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form balls of dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten slightly with the back of the spoon.

  • 5-Garnish

    Sprinkle each cookie with sesame seeds before baking.

  • 6-Bake

    Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. They will be soft but will firm up as they cool.

  • 7-Cool

    Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Conclusion

    Tahini Cookies Without Butter are not only easy to make but also offer a deliciously unique taste. Perfect for a healthy snack, these cookies can be enjoyed guilt-free at any time of the day.

Smart Tips

  • Consistency of Tahini: Ensure your tahini is well stirred before using. Separation is natural, so mixing it well ensures a consistent texture in your cookies.

  • Flavor Variations: Consider adding a hint of cinnamon, cardamom, or orange zest to the dough for an aromatic twist.

  • Checking for Doneness: Look for a slight browning on the edges to know when the cookies are done. They harden as they cool, so avoid overbaking.

  • Storage Solutions: Keep the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature to maintain freshness.

  • For a Vegan Option: Use a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water, left to sit for 5 minutes) instead of a regular egg.

  • Nut Allergies: Tahini, being sesame seed-based, is a great alternative for those allergic to nuts but can still enjoy seed-based products.

  • Measuring Tahini: Use a greased measuring cup for tahini to prevent it from sticking.

  • Baking Sheet Spacing: Space the cookies sufficiently apart, as they will spread a little while baking.

  • Taste Test the Dough: Adjust the sugar or add-ins according to your preference after tasting the dough.
