Packed with flavor and perfect for any occasion, these Tahini Shortbread Cookies will make your taste-buds happy.

The class turned in their papers, placing them neatly in their folders. Peggy looked around the room, her eyes lighting up as she saw a box of tahini shortbread cookies on the desk of one of the students.

“That’s mine!” she exclaimed, leaping to grab the box.

“I think so too,” said the student, grabbing the box away from her.

Peggy and the student scuffled for the box, each trying to hold on to it. Finally, the student let go and Peggy quickly gathered up the cookies, stuffing them into her backpack.

“I’ll get you for this, mark my words!” she threatened, sneering at the student.

The student just smiled, knowing that Peggy would probably never get her own back.

What are Tahini Shortbread Cookies?

Tahini Shortbread Cookies are a type of cookie that are made from a dough that is flavored with tahini and then rolled in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. They are usually garnished with a few drops of lemon juice, and are popular in the Middle East and North Africa.

How do I make Tahini Shortbread Cookies?

To make Tahini Shortbread Cookies, you will need to begin by preparing the dough. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Stir in the tahini, and then mix in the butter until the ingredients are completely combined. With your hands, mix the dough until it is stiff enough to form into balls.

Once the dough is ready, you will need to roll it out on a surface that is floured. Be sure to roll the dough out to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Then, use a fork to cut out circles that are about 1 inch in diameter. Once the dough is cut out, place them on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.

For the lemon juice topping, you will first need to zest a lemon. Then, you will need to mix together sugar and lemon juice. After that, you will simply brush the lemon juice mixture over the cookies.

What should I do if the cookies are not rising?

If the cookies are not rising, you may need to adjust the amount of yeast that you are using. You can also try adding more flour to the dough, or using a higher the temperature when you are Mousetraping the cookies.
