Happy New Year!
It has been about a month.... Well, I was busy during the Holidays, both at home and at work (the busiest time of year actually!).
I, of course, baked. As I always do!
Oh, this recipe is a lovely twist on my basic sugar cookie recipe...
You will love it!
Tahini and orange... Well, this is a combination you just can't go wrong with!
I took my basic recipe and added 2 tbsp natural tahini, the zest of 1 orange and orange juice. For the juice part, I used 3 tbsp, because I wanted the cookie dough to be looser than usual, since I wanted to use it through a spritz cookie press.
Another thing is that I made them gluten free and therefore baked them a little longer, than the wheat flour sugar cookies.
If you want rolled cookies, just use the orange zest, the tahini and maybe a teaspoon or two of juice, in order for the dough to be a bit firmer.
Also, you may be able to find orange flavoured tahini and use that!
No matter how you choose to make them, the taste of these cookies is out of this world!
