Tahini and hazelnuts cookies.

DI Chiara Maci | 19 Feb 2019


Tahini (sesame paste) cookies, have you ever tried them?

I took inspiration from my friend Laurel, so good at making cookies.

I’m copying them, super good!


Ingredients (for about 24 cookies):

260g flour 00

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 pinch of salt

170g of butter, softened at room temperature

150g of sugar

2 tablespoons of honey

170g of tahini (sesame paste)

40g of sesame seeds

Whole hazelnuts (2 for each cookie)


– Preheat oven at 180c.

– Mix the sifted flour and baking powder with a pinch of salt into a bowl.

– Beat the butter with sugar and honey separately until you get a soft and creamy mixture.

– Add tahina and the mixture of flour and baking powder gradually, continuing to whisk in order to mix all ingredients.

– Wet your hands and make small balls with the dough, about two cm in diameter each.

– Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and place the cookies on it, leaving some space among them.

– Place two hazelnuts on top of each cookie.

– Cook tahini and hazelnuts cookies for about 13-15 minutes.

– Take the cookies out the oven and let them cool down.
