One of the simplest and most magical things I’ve made in a v v long time is this Chocolate Halva Spread. It’s so incredibly simple (three ingredients!) and it takes seconds to make. It’s one of those things that you mix together and wonder where it’s been all your life. It makes you wonder why it isn’t sold in containers, at every grocery store, all over the world. It makes you wonder how Nutella got popular, with all its weird ingredients and oils, and this didn’t…maybe it’s not too late.

Tahini and Concord Grape Thumbprint Cookie

These cookies are like a grown up version of peanut butter and jelly.

If you’ve ever bought a big jar of tahini for hummus and then scratched your head thinking what else you’d use it for, well, this izzzzz it. I remember ions ago, I tried to make hummus without tahini and thought it tasted great. I was like, why would I even need to buy that extra jar of tahini for $8. I obviously had no clue about life in general. Years later I wisened up and bit the bullet and bought tahini. The addition of tahini in hummus was revelatory. And I realized that hummus isn’t hummus without tahini.

These cookies celebrate the flavor of tahini. They have a bit of a bite, are slightly tangy, nutty and their texture is awesome (thanks to the sesame). These cookies are perfectly sweet which works great with all those flavors. And I mean, look at how cute they are!
