The G rated version of this comes (again) from the Recipes to the Rescue book, but I have changed it a bit.
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup barley flour
1/4 tsp bicarb of soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 - 1 tsp ground ginger. OR 2 tsp carob powder
1/2 cup tahini (the original recipe used ground pecans)
2 tbs honey (original recipe uses 1 tbs honey, 1 tbs maple syrup)
4 tbs citrus juice (original recipe uses 2 tbs but I found this too dry)
Sift dry ingredients, add wet ingredients.
Knead lightly and roll into small balls.
Place balls on a baking sheet and press down with the back of a fork
Bake 15 - 20 minutes in moderate oven.
Yummy with chopped nuts, dried fruit or small choc bits.
MA Rated Tahini Cookies
1 cup tahini (crunchy peanut butter is also delicious)
1 cup sugar (ok - you don't need the full cup)
1 cup crushed chocolate bits (use the best!!)
Sounds like it won't work but it does. Mix it all up really good and drop small spoonfuls on a tray. Bake in mod oven about 15 minutes. They'll spread a bit but they do keep their structure. This recipe was sent to me by my sister-in-law. I made a batch last night for Father's Day, but ate them with the women who came over to make dolls with me....so I'm making another batch this morning!!
