Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's not much to justify this post other than my favorite treat as a kid (and probably still today) were the chocolate chip cookies my mom made. I love a good chocolate chip cookie and I want to be able to make them quickly and easily when I'm craving them. It has to be a one bowl wonder and not leave me in agony as I wait for them to bake for 20 minutes.

My adoration for tahini started fairly recently, probably in the last year or so. I love to toss it in salad dressings, pad thai sauce, on an egg sandwich... so why not add it to cookie dough? This is a great recipe to try if you've never had tahini before and want to get your feet wet. In these cookies it adds a fullness to the flavor and leaves you with a soft, pillowy texture. If you're a soft-baked cookie kind of person then these are for you. And if you're not... well these are also for you, maybe just bake them a bit longer!

Let me know how you like to use tahini and enjoy these delicious, fast and easy treats!
