  • 165g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp crushed Maldon salt
  • 110g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 110g Med Cuisine Black Tahini
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g chopped white chocolate
  • White and black sesame seeds for rolling


  1. Prepare Dry Ingredients:

    • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugars:

    • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the butter, black tahini, dark brown sugar, and caster sugar. Beat on medium speed for about 5 minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. Incorporate Eggs and Vanilla:

    • Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Continue to mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Combine with Dry Ingredients:

    • With the mixer still on low, gradually add the dry ingredients, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  5. Add Chocolate:

    • Once the dry ingredients are incorporated, fold in the chopped white chocolate. Transfer the dough to a clean bowl.
  6. Chill the Dough:

    • Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for a few hours, until the dough is firm enough to handle.
  7. Form Cookies:

    • Once chilled, form the dough into balls and roll each in a mixture of white and black sesame seeds.
  8. Second Chill:

    • Arrange the cookie balls on a tray lined with parchment paper, cover with cling film, and refrigerate overnight.
  9. Baking:

    • Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F). Line baking trays with parchment paper.
    • Place the chilled cookie balls on the trays, spaced well apart to allow for spreading.
    • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the edges are just set.
  10. Cooling:

    • Let the cookies cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy your freshly baked Black Tahini and White Chocolate Cookies!
