 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 c Butter; softened
  • 1/2 c Tahini
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 1 1/4 c Brown sugar
  • 2 c Unbleached pastry flour
  • 1/2 c Toasted pecans or walnuts
  • -- chopped or ground
  • A few pecan or walnut halves


Preheat the oven to 375 F. With a food processor or by hand, cream the
butter with the tahini. Add the salt and brown sugar. Blend until smooth.
Sprinkle in the flour, blending well. Mix in the chopped nuts. The dough
will be very stiff. Lightly butter two 7-inch pie plates or shallow baking
pans. Press the dough to evenly cover the bottom and sides of the pie
plates to a thickness of no more than 1/4-inch. Press a few whole nuts into
the surface to decorate. Bake the shortbread for 15 mniutes and then check
it frequently, every couple of minutes, and remove it from the oven as soon
as the edges are golden brown. Be careful not to overbake it. While it's
still warm, cut each shortbread into 8 or 10 wedges in the pan; don't wait
until it's cool or it will crumble.
