Tahini and Sesame Cookies (with photo)
« on: July 05, 2010, 11:26:01 am »

They have a sweet and salty taste at the same time  ;)



Tahini and Sesame Cookies

Ingredients

100g sugar
100g walnuts

500g flour
15g salt
200g margarin or butter (room temperature)
1 egg
1 MC tahini

1 egg yolk
Sesame

Preparation
    * Put sugar in TM Bowl. 10 seconds / Speed 10
    * Add walnuts and chop for 10 seconds on Speed 6-7. Set aside
    * Sift in flour, add salt, margarin and egg. Mix for 1 minute on Speed 3-4 and then for another minute on Speed 4-5. At the same time mix with TM Spatula through the hole of TM Lid
    * Sprinkle a little flour on the surface and roll out the dough gently about 30x50cm. (it will have a crumbling texture so be careful not to break)

    * Brush with tahini on the top and then spread sugar-walnut mixture
    * Roll it carefully into a log shape
    * After that roll again to lengthen it pressing gently with your hands (from the center towards to the ends) to around 60cm
    * Cut into slices around 2,5 - 3cm pieces. (If you cut too thin they may fall during baking)
    * Brush with slightly beaten egg yolk, dip into sesame and place in oven tray which is previously covered with baking paper
    * Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 30-35 minutes

Thanks farfallina. I may try these with almonds as DH isn't fond of walnuts. I made the blue cheese and walnut biscuits in the Festive book and he then informed me he'd rather not have the walnuts! We've only been together 42 years. :-\ :-\

oh dear Cookie!!! At least he told you I guess  :-)) :-)) :-))

I think my like might like these - as soon as I read the name I wanted to try them but had to check them to see if the mob would eat them. My hips couldn't cope with me having to eat them all  :o :o
