Sea Salt Tahini Chocolate Chunk Cookies


I N G R E D I E N T S

  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened tahini
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 8 ounces of chopped semi-sweet chocolate

D I R E C T I O N S

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Whisk together the butter, sugars, and salt until a fully combined. The mixture should form a ribbon when lifting up the whisk. Whisk in the tahini.
  3. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Sift the flour and baking soda into the wet mixture and fold (with a spatula) until just combined. Do not over-mix!
  5. Fold in the chopped chocolate, and chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 13 cookies between two sheet pans. Bake for 13-15 minutes* until crisp on the edges and chewy in the centers. Sprinkle some coarse sea salt on top while still warm.

*For the best flat/chewy/crisp texture, lift the sheet pan and quickly drop it down in the oven at around 8 minutes and 12 minutes.
