Cookies with tahini and black sesame. Eggless recipe.

I think they're the most interesting recently baked cookies. I made the recipe for the first time and I was surprised by the intense aroma of halva. I instantly remembered a store in Craiova, where I grew up, behind the market that had large pieces of halva on the counter at the cash register, along with fresh bread and lots of containers of spilled olives. A strange and totally random combination, but one that makes me salivate even now. I remember those pieces of halva that were present in other shops and bakeries, always sold at the bar. I liked the texture, the way it broke in my hands and the fact that it stuck to my teeth. I never put up with cocoa halva. The best and purest was the simple one, with vanilla. I don't think I've ever eaten cocoa halva therefore. Is she good? Also, I have never eaten halva other than so empty. I didn't think it could be baked with it or added to cakes or cookies. At Ottolenghi, however, I discovered black with halva and shortbread with halva and caramel.

These cookies are not from there, but from a book of Israeli recipes. I decorated them with sesame seeds because they looked nicer than simple.

They are good, crunchy and crumbly, slightly sticky and sweet, but with an intense halva flavor. If you like it, then you will also like cookies. If not, then maybe not. Try.

ingredients

for 14 cookies of 30 gr.

100 gr. unsalted, soft butter
85 gr. white sugar
85 gr. tahini (sesame paste)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
150 gr. White flour
black sesame seeds for decoration

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Baking time: 10-12 minutes

The butter mixes with the sugar until it becomes fluffy and looks like a light cream. Add tahini and vanilla. We mix.

Combine the flour with the baking powder and gradually add to the bowl with the butter cream until it forms a compact and slightly sticky dough. We gather the shell of cookies from the bowl with our hands. Form 14 dough balls of 30 grams and place them on a large baking tray or two if they do not fit. We lightly press the cookies with our fingers to flatten them a little and decorate with black sesame seeds.

Bake at 180 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on them because they don't have to take on too much color. Sesame paste can burn and taste bitter.

Serve immediately or keep in a tightly closed container. I'm having a few good days. They have nothing in them to spoil quickly.
