Written by in , , Comments Off on Recipe for Sesami Biskoti – Greek Sesame Cookies

Ingredients for Sesami Biskoti:

  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Instructions to Prepare Greek Sesame Cookies:

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the tahini and sugar to a large mixing bowl and cream together on medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the cardamom and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. Slowly add the water and orange juice and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth and sticky.

In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk until well combined. Slowly beat the flour mixture into the wet ingredients with the mixer on low speed and beat until well combined and a smooth dough forms.

Put the sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll into the sesame seeds. Flatten each ball slightly to form a disk and then place them on ungreased baking sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. Place the baking sheet in the center of the oven and bake for thirty minutes or until the cookies are golden brown, about twenty minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet or on wire racks.
