Daily Inspiration

Delicious cookies and one I will definitely make again. Loved the idea of the tahini (which we love) and the honey. The cookies are a little sweet, but not overly so. Loved the addition of the pepitas and sesame seeds. The cookies do spread so make sure they are well separated. Nice and crunchy on the bottom and soft inside - perfect.
