I loved this cookie! Tender, flavorful, perfect texture. Tahini is an acquired taste, but isn't too overpowering in this recipe. Like others, I found that the cookies will fall apart if you handle them while they're still hot. Rather than use a wire cooling rack, I used a grill pan to cool them on. They fall through the wire rack. If you allow the full cooling time, they hold together fine.

This recipe, as is, is GREAT. The cookies are light and delicate. I did have to add some extra flour (about 1/4 c). A friend of mine from Syria loved them, but for my kids, while the cookies were warm, I sifted a very little bit of powdered sugar on top. DELICIOUS enough for tea or church function.

We made these according to the recipe, and they were awesome. The texture is similar to peanut butter cookies, but without the peanut flavor.
