Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookie


Cooking Time

12 minutes

Yields

18 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter (organic is possible)
  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 1/4 cup Local Honey
  • 3/4 Cup Sucanat or Brown sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 Egg yolk, preferably free range
  • 1 1/2 teas orange extract or 6 drops orange oil
  • 1 1/2 Cup flour or Gluten Free substitute
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Cup chopped nuts of choice

Directions

Preheat oven to 360 degrees

Cream sugars with tahini and butter until smooth and fluffy.  Add eggs then dry ingredients.  Mix on low speed for 5 minutes.  Add chocolates and nuts mixing until just incorporated.  

Allow dough to refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.  

Scoop by rounded tabled spoon or use ice cream scoop onto a parchment paper lined tray.  

Bake for 9 minutes, rotate pan baking an additional 3 minutes to even out the color.  If your preference is a softer cookie, remove from oven when a hint of color graces the outer edge of cookie.  If your preference is a crisper cookie, bake cookie until there is a golden hue of color across the face of the cookie.  Keeping in mind, a cookie continues to bake for 3 to 5 minutes once removed from the oven.

Enjoy!!!

Notes

By replacing half of the fat in this cookie with a sesame nut butter, introduces healthy protein rich fat.  The nutty flavor combined with the orange makes this recipe delectable.
