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..:-)
