I was asked by Maria (here in the last comment) about the tahini cookies, I'm sorry for my late answer, but I wanted to
bake the cookies , one more time today to understand what get wrong.the recipe is correct.
* I use 2 sets of measuring cups, one is for liquids,the other cups are for the flour, sugar...; This measuring cup measures:1 cup flour=140 gr flour. 1 cup sugar = 200 gr sugar.. so maybe there was a use of a bigger cup?
in the same sort of cup that you measure the flour, measure the 1/2 cup of the tahini.
* Please don't over bake these cookies, 15 minutes are the best, maybe 1 or 2 minutes more. they will not become golden or brown, and I think with more baking time , you'll get crumbles. The cookies bottoms will become brown after 15-17 minutes, at 325F.
* Leave the cookies in the baking dish to cool, for few minutes.[otherwise you'll ger crumbles]
* Today I've made the cookies smaller (above pic), so I've gut more than 80 cookies !! - they are small like buttons, so we call them buttons ...
Call these cookies as you whish just know they taste like halva and they're the most easy ever..:-)

Just made these and they came out GREAT! I had another recipe that I tried a few times, but they never turned out. One thing I changed though, was that I used 1/4 tehina that was already mixed with honey and 1/4 regular. Because of the honey, I cut down the sugar, but I'm happpy to report that they still came out fine. Next time I'll have to double the recipe, because 50 is nowhere near enough for the way my family eats!

Thanks so much for posting - I love these cookies!

Hey! I have just made the cookies and they are really tasty and not very sweet, which I like. One thing though bothers me - the flour seemed very little - and I was unable to make neat balls like you on the photo, and then the cookies are really crumbly. I'll try next time with more flour. I also baked them for 30 min. After 15 min they looked rather uncooked.

My mother in law adds a dash of lemon juice and 50 grams of chopped almonds (the white ones used for baking). I think it adds alot!
