"Tahini adds richness and moisture to baked goods like these blondies, and a nicet, slightly bitter nuttiness. If you didn’t know the secret ingredient, you’d just think these squares taste like blondies "all grown up". They’re sweet but not too sweet. These blondies are easily tweaked by adding mix-ins, so stir in chopped walnuts or white chocolate chips, or whatever tickles your fancy! Just don’t skip the flaky sea salt on top... Real Simple!"
