Today, I felt a little under the weather, but around 6pm, I felt better all of a sudden and couldn't wait to start baking these! I had been hatching up this idea for the last few days... tahini... I could make a peanut butter cookie, but with tahini instead. And I should add something like lemon, or orange... And then a last minute addition: cinnamon. A perfect aromatic scrumptiousness! Come to think of it, these would make a nice gift, all tied up in a bow... --- Jenny
