Tahini & Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve decided to keep this post simple. Made these tahini chocolate chunk cookies from Molly Yeh, adapted from another recipe.

What I liked:

  • Big chocolate chunks are definitely better than small chips.
  • In theory, I love the idea of tahini in cookies (see here) as I love the mix of savoury and sweet ingredients in baking.

What wasn’t so good:

  • I didn’t really taste the tahini! It was lost.
  • They were too soft in the middle and fell apart quite easily.
  • The ultimate one– they simply took too long to make (you have to freeze the dough overnight). I will happily start many things the day before but I don’t think cookies are one of them.

Ultimate verdict: these cookies were certainly tasty, but, despite the inclusion of tahini, far from my favourite. I won’t be making them again.

    These look so interesting, I love tahini – I imagine it was a bit like a peanut butter cookie taste?

      Yes, a little bit! But not quite as sweet. Give them a go. 🙂
