Chocolate Open Sesames, Tahini Chocolate Cookies


Tahini cookies that taste so good, you’ll be back for seconds and thirds.

It’s my last day in Georgia! I leave for Texas TODAY! I am beyond excited to start this new adventure and my new job! In case you don’t know I have been into retail since the start of college, ya know 4 seasons with the Diamondbacks does that to you. I’m combining my love of retail with my love for food working with Square Organics as a Brand Ambassador. I have been so stoked about this job since I applied a while back. I’m so excited to be part of the Square fam! I will be hosting demos at various locations throughout Dallas. If you haven’t tried them yet the chocolate covered ones are my favorite. Speaking of chocolate, let’s make some cookies.

Wait! Don’t run away yet, tahini is pretty cool. Used widely in Mediterranian and Middle East cuisine tahini is made by roasting and crushing sesame seeds. The sesame seeds are mixed together until butter-like consistency. Closely resembling peanut butter and nut butter by texture and a nutty taste. Although, tahini is an uncommon cookie ingredient that sounds weirder than weird, hear me out. There was 3/4 a container of tahini in the fridge and something had to be done with it. Plus, dessert is never a bad idea.
