I am always in search of a cookie that tastes great, ingredients are always on hand and are easy to make in a jiffy.
I guess my friend Tamari has the same notion. These are her cookies and there isn't a food forum in Israel that hasn't discussed them, posted them, praised them.
I praise Tamari.
Every recipe she has given is made to perfection. I have a Tamari factor. If she says go - I know I should run and make them.
These are her cookies. The mixture of tehina and sugar gives these cookies a taste of halva, and who is the middle-east doesn't like halva?? Overall, I would say that even though they aren't low in calories - the fact that tehina paste is so high in iron, makes these cookies pretty healthy.
Tamari's Tehina Bulbs
100 grams butter, room temp.
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup good quality tehina paste
1 cup flour
powdered sugar for covering
In bowl on high speed, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the tehina paste and continue beating.
Add the flour - by hand - until incorporated in mixture. Roll cookies into walnut sized balls and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Pre-heat oven to 170 C. Roll cookies in powdered sugar and bake approx 10 minutes till cookies start cracking.
Cool completely before removing from cookie sheet.
These cookies won't last long.....
Thank you Tamari for another wonderful recipe!
