As you all know, I love cookies, crinkle cookies, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, you name it …if it’s a cookie than I probably already like it. Oatmeal cookies are another favorite but I felt it was time for a do over. I nixed the raisins and added tahini instead. For those of you who don’t know, tahini is a smooth creamy paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is very trendy right now do to its undeniable health benefits and unique ability to work beautifully well in both sweet or savory foods.
Though not a traditional pairing, tahini and oatmeal worked well together and resulted in a chewy, rich and not too sweet oatmeal cookie. A more grown-up version that the ones you had as a kid. Try, I know you will like it, it’s a cookie remember…what could be bad!
