Chocolate Sesame Cookies

February 27, 2013, 2:02 pm

from Grocer's Daughter Chocolate

9 oz. 70% dark chocolate
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup organic raw cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sesame seeds

  1. In a small sauce pan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth.  Remove from heat; stir in tahini and set aside to cool.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sea salt; set aside.  Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until frothy and pale. Beat in chocolate mixture until just combined.  Cover and chill dough in the refrigerator until it’s easy to handle.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F.  Pour sesame seeds into a shallow bowl.  Roll dough into 1 inch balls; press the top of each ball into sesame seeds.  Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until puffed on top and flat on the bottom.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  Makes about 40 cookies.
