I made these cookies before my 2013 challenge, so I don’t get to “count it” but that doesn’t mean that I can’t and won’t share it. I went to pre-school after all. I learned how to share.
Side note: My aunt was my pre-school teacher and it was awesome. I remember only two thngs – an awesome sandbox and the time that my dad came to pick me up and I pulled the fire alarm walking out to the car. Instead of telling the people at the school, my dad said “Let’s get out of here!” And we did.
We’re fugitives, I guess is what I’m saying.
Wow, that was off-topic.
So I made some cookies and they were good and I ate them. And I’m not feeling very chatty or witty or creative right now (not to mention that nothing I say will top the story I just told you anyway, so why bother, right?) so I’m just going to shut up already and give you the recipe.
So you can make them, too.
Or not. Whatever.
Carob Tahini Cookies
- 1 1/2 T tahini
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 T carob powder (cocoa powder works fine too)
- 1 T arrowroot starch (or cornstarch)
- 2/3 cup oat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon (optional, but encouraged)
Cream together tahini, egg, sugar and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients (I never do the whole mix in a separate bowl and then add a bit at a time thing, but if that’s your style, feel free.) and mix until combined.
Bake on a silpat or greased cookie sheet at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
These cookies were a product of a desire to finish up the bottoms of both my tahini jar and the bag of carob flour.
Sometimes I get in these moods where I just want to clear the clutter from life. Usually this just ends in a car full of bags and a trip to the Goodwill, but this time the end result was much nicer.
An edible result, especially if it is a cookie, can’t fail.
Also? How cute is this cupcake plate?!?! I got that in my huge tub-o-goodies from Santa.
It was right next to a very Spring-y looking cake platter. Which I think might have been a hint from Santa that I need to start honing my cake making skills.
Twist my arm.
Anyone else have any funny pre-school stories? Am I the only whatever-the-opposite-of-a-packrat-is out there? What do you do with the little bits of things left in condiment jars or on pantry shelves?
