"I made these up myself and they're really good! They're a bit like Turkish halva but not as sweet and very easy to make!"

Thanks for the great recipe! It was easy and included stuff I already had on hand. However, only serve them to people who are more adventurous eaters- they do not have a typical cookie taste and are somewhat of a cross between peanut butter cookies and snickerdoodle/sugar cookies. If you are interested in making this, I would recommend that you make sure the butter and sugar are creamed well. There are no ingredients that cause rising action, so you need to incorporate air by creaming the butter and sugar. Do not overbake these cookies- they come out of the oven soft but will hardent up somewhat after cooling.

I've used this recipe several times - It's a crispy good-tasting cookie that's a little unusual. It makes a good gift cookie.

I was really excited about this recipe. I always like when ingredients that I typically associate with savory (tahini in this case) are used in an atypical fashion. These were a little bit of a let down. I just didn't like the combination of tahini and sweetness. I think maybe it's because I really love tahini for it's slightly nutty/chalky taste and this was masked by the sugar. Just a personal preference for me. I'm sure others will actually enjoy the cookie BECAUSE it takes out that strong taste from the tahini.
