Orange Sesame Cookies

If you're not familiar with tahini you're in for a surprise. This is a dense, chewy cookie with lots of sesame flavor and a nice orange note. Perfect as a savory sweet afternoon snack. Feel free to use black sesame seeds (for rolling) for a different look, or half black and half white seeds. Tahini is a paste made from crushed sesame seeds often used in Middle Eastern cooking. It has a consistency much like sunflower seed butter and a very distinct flavor. Tahini is very high in protein, one of the highest of the seed/nut butters.
