This is the ultimate sweet and salty cookie.
A big chunk of the world has a love affair with tahini we are missing out on. Not just in hummus. Tahini itself.
While it’s more common for us to think of tahini as an addition to savory foods – hummus or baba ganouj – it’s also the main compenent of halva (or halwa), a crumbly, sweet dessert made of tahini and often other additions like pistachios, coffee or chocolate. Some people mix it with butter for a creamier texture – and that’s exactly what these rolls remind me of.
