A talented baker we know made this recipe. If you can't get tahini, I'm sure creamy peanut butter would do.


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup tahini or peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  1. Mix the butter, sugar, and tahini in a food processor. Make sure to cut up the butter into manageable pieces first.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together, hopefully with a sifter to make sure everything mixes well.
  3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and make into a big ball. Pull apart small even sized pieces, and roll into balls.
  4. Additionally, you can roll each ball in chopped nuts or sesame seeds and so it is well covered.
  5. Put in oven for 10 minutes or until you smell the baked smells, at 350 degrees F.
