Love tahini, love these! Not sweet enough, though, had to increase white sugar to 1 cup. That was perfect!

I have been searching for a tahini cookie recipe for a while and was happy to find this while playing the ZWT3!! I made a 1/2 batch and made some adjustments to accommodate what I had at hand and personal preferences. I used a combo of whole wheat and all purpose flours because I often enjoy that mixture in cookie recipes. I used a store brand liquid egg substitute and added a teaspoon of sesame seeds to the batter as well as a sprinkle over each cookie before baking. I am embarrassed to admit that I did not cut my cookies ...I KNOW - the stars would have been so cute but I was pressed for time and decided to just "test run" a batch to see how I like the flavor. They came out excellent...I thought the subtle sweetness of the tahini was perfect...maybe better than peanut butter - or maybe just a neat surprising change!!! They had a buttery rich quality...very enjoyable!! Thanks so much for sharing a great idea!!...ps - I love Molly Katzan!!! Next time I am doing the star shapes!!!

I have to first say that I was looking forward to using tahini, but alas my grocery store was out. So I used PB. I made a half batch and based on other reviews I kept the 1/4 cup of white sugar the same. I rolled mine in sesame seeds and patted them flat. Great project with DD who was home sick yesterday.

I didn't give this any stars because I had to substitute some peanut butter for the tahini. It wasn't as sweet as I would have liked, but in all fairness I did half the recipe and this may be the reason. So give this a try!
