These may look like old-fashioned peanut butter cookies, but their texture and flavor is deliciously updated with tahini (sesame paste).
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 egg
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste) or peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sesame seed
Sesame Fork Cookies Recipe at
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, baking powder, and nutmeg; beat till combined. Beat in the egg, tahini or peanut butter, and vanilla. Beat in the whole-wheat flour and as much of the all-purpose flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining all-purpose flour and the sesame seed with a wooden spoon. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten each ball by pressing with the tines of a fork in a crisscross pattern.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees oven for 7 to 9 minutes, or till lightly browned. Remove cookies from the pans and cool on a rack.

A little dry and difficult to form cookies
i tried recipe with tahini and the dough is very crumbly, i read recipe 4-5 times to make sure i added right amount of each ingredient. trying to flatten with fork only made cookies crumble and once done they are dry and the taste is OK, not sure if peanut butter would have been better to use. overall disappointed.
