Tahini Date Sugar Cookies

Tahini date sugar cookies

 Have you tried baking with tahini yet? This is your sign! The tahini gives a creamy earthy flavor to these cookies which is paired with the deep caramel flavor from the date sugar. Topped off with a sesame seed crust, these cookies are like nothing you've tried before. 


  • 1 ½ cup (200g) all-purpose flour⁠
  • ½ tsp baking soda⁠
  • 1/4 tsp salt⁠
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, RT⁠
  • 1 cup (150g) Date Sugar⁠
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract⁠
  • 1 large egg⁠
  • 2/3 cup tahini⁠
  • 2 Tbsp Date Syrup⁠
  • Sesame seeds and flaked salt for topping ⁠

⁠How to: 


  1. Pre-heat the oven at 350F and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt then set aside.
  3. Starting on a low setting with an electric mixer, cream the butter and date sugar. The date sugar is very fine so a towel over the bowl may be helpful until it is bound to the butter.
  4. Increase the mixing speed to medium-low and add in the vanilla, egg, tahini, and date syrup.
  5. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to stir in the flour mixture and fold the ingredients together until there are no more dry streaks. The dough may be a bit crumbly but it will come together when pressed in your hand
  6. Scoop ~1 Tbsp of the cookie dough and roll into a ball before flattening slightly. Top with sesame seeds
  7. Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown
  8. Carefully transfer to a cooling rack and sprinkle with flaked salt while they’re still warm
