  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 oz)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup tahini (roasted sesame-seed paste)
  • 1 large egg
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk; set mixture aside.
  3. Place brown sugar, tahini, and oil in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add syrup, vanilla, and egg; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture to sugar mixture, beating at low speed just until combined.
  4. Lightly coat hands with cooking spray. Shape dough into 36 balls (about 1 inch each). Place granulated sugar in a shallow bowl. Roll dough balls in granulated sugar; place 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Flatten balls slightly with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on a wire rack.
