Prep Time 10 mins


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup tahini paste
  • 3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chopped or chips


  • ¬†Preheat oven to 350 F and Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside
  • Chop your chocolate into chunks and set aside.
  • In a medium, microwave safe bowl- melt the butter in 30 second increments, stirring each time to ensure that it evenly melts.
  • While the butter slightly cools. In a large bowl- combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and whisk to combine.
  • Whisk sugars into the bowl with the melted butter. Once¬†fully combined, whisk in 1 egg and combine before adding the second egg. Stir in tahini. Add the vanilla.
  • Combine the wet Ingredients with your dry ingredients and mix with a spatula until combined. This step takes some wrist action for a few minutes but do not over mix! Fold in the chocolate.
  • Option to wrap the dough overnight- this enhances the flavor but its not required. You can also bake right away!
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes or until slightly golden on top. I always under bake my cookies because they will continue to bake once out of the oven. They may still appear soft but they will firm up! Optional- top with sea salt. Allow to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes and enjoy!
