Peanut Butter and Sesame Seed Cookies

Peanut Butter and Sesame Seed Cookies by Ng @ What's for Dinner?The only thing that can improve peanut butter cookies is Hershey Kiss, sadly there are no chocolate kisses in Ireland. I wanted to try something new so I replaced some of the PB with tahini and rolled the cookies in sesame seeds.
Peanut Butter and Sesame Seed Cookies by Ng @ What's for Dinner?I started out with the Betty Crocker's classic Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe but 1/4 cup of trans-fat had to go!!! I replaced shorting with coconut oil, but I think just butter would work as well.

Peanut Butter Sesame Seed Cookies
Makes 24 yummy cookies (plus a few bits of raw dough if you dare)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup - 1 Tbs peanut butter
1 Tbs tahini
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt (leave out if using salted butter)

Cream the sugar with the butter and coconut oil. Mix in the PB and tahini. Add in the egg. Mix. Then add the flour baking soda and powder.

The Betty Crocker recipe calls for the dough to rest for 2 hours, but its really cold here and my dough never got very warm. So really its up to you. (My mom would never ever let cookies dough rest, maybe because we would eat the dough if she did.)

Shape the dough into balls. I split the dough in 1/2 and then 1/2 agian so I only had to 3 cookies at a time that way they were all the same size. Roll the balls in semame seed, place on a cookie sheet and push down with a fork.

Cook for 10 min in a pre-heated oven at 190c or 375f.
