These are definitely a keeper...they are delicious. My grandsons (age 18 mos and 3) love them!! The tahini adds great flavour and less fat.


The cookies are good. I divided the batter to two, added dried cherry and chocolate to one and nuts with chocolate to the other. I did not used granulated sugar and it is sweet enough for me.


These cookies are delicious! I had no problem shaping them into balls, just used my cookie dough scoop. I followed the recipe and baked for the 16 minutes, and they turned out perfect. Nice and chewy, but cooked through. They are wonderful and the kids love them!


We have been trying new chocolate chip cookie recipes for weeks, including "Bev's Chocolate Chip Cookies" from Eating Well... and this is our NEW FAVORITE! We have found the richness of traditional cookies too much... and have been switching to whole wheat & healthier recipes. The sugar is just right (use 2/3 cup for each) BUT ADD 1 TBSP to Butter to TOTAL 5 TBSP for recipe. I used extra large eggs and they were perfectly chewy. We like the flavor after they have cooled down. EVEN MY 12 YEAR OLD (who doesn't like oatmeal) LOVES THESE!!! YOU MUST TRY THIS RECIPE!


Good cookie - but way too difficult to form into the balls - sooooooo time consuming so for me - not worth the effort.

Sesame taste is a bit much too,
