About Molasses Tahini Cookies:

Tahini is made of mashed sesames and it is one the essential sauces of Turkish cuisine. It is generally consumed by mixing with molasses. In cold winter days, it boosts energy in our bodies. Besides, it is used as an ingredient for cookies, cakes, pastries etc. Especially my husband likes to have them on his toasted bread. He doesn’t like any cookies, but I want to say that you should try this molasses tahini cookies too. You may increase tahini or molasses if you wish.

    • Hi Aggeliki. Yes, Greece has rich for olive and grapes, you’re very lucky. Yes, I forgot writing it on the recipe. It adds some flavour. You can try it next time :) I would like to try some Greek recipes, but nowadays I’m very very busy and I can’t even make new ones. Good day to you too. See you next time.
