Magical Two-Ingredient Halva Cookies

Halva Cookies

Delicious Halva Cookies

 

 

These halva cookies have only two ingredients (and neither of them are flour).

It has the consistency of a cookie, and the taste of halva.  Amazing!

The recipe for these cookies is… well basically there’s no recipe.

Just mix:

2 parts tahini paste

1 part honey

That’s it. I’ve made as little as 2 tbsp. tahini paste + 1 tbsp. honey or you can whip up a big batch.

Mix the two ingredients vigorously with a fork. Keep mixing until it gets a more solid consistency. Wet your hands (so the dough doesn’t stick to them) and form the balls. Pat each ball down lightly and bake on a cookie sheet in a 150 C (300F) oven. That’s it.

Extras:

Garnish with a pecan or almond on each cookie, or bury a piece of chocolate inside.

I have to warn you. While this recipe is super easy, the cookies are also a little finicky. They really don’t like to be over-baked, even a little. On the other hand, they don’t really change color, so it’s a bit hard to tell when they’re done. 

My son (who introduced me to this great recipe – thank you!) baked them in a toaster oven for 40 minutes. I needed 25 minutes in my own oven. My suggestion is to time them carefully and see what works for you, then do the same each time. 

Note:  This is an extremely kid friendly recipe. Got pre-schoolers at home? I’m sure they’d love to make homemade cookies with you.

Enjoy!
