Gaby's Bakery - Tahini Biscuits

It’s true that I hate cooking. But I love baking.

Cooking seems all kitchen histrionics and flailing arms - a dollop of this a bit of that. All too stressful. I love baking because it’s measured and precise. I spend 3-4 hours a day refining my methods and trying new recipes. Or maybe a twist on one I’ve picked up. Each week I’ll share a few of our favourites.

Tahini Biscuits
Gluten free & Vegan

This is a healthy alternative biscuit and really easy to make.

Ingredients:
100g Tahini
100g almond flour
95g Honey or Maple Syrup
½ tsp Vanilla bean paste or vanilla essence
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
White & Black sesame seeds for sprinkling.

Method
Mix all the ingredients together except the sesame seeds until everything is incorporated. It will be quite a wet consistency. Prepare a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Take a tbsp of mixture and roll into a ball. Or my preferred method is to pipe ball shaped blobs onto a prepared tray. Make sure you leave space between each one as they will spread. Press each ball down slightly and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

Place the tray in the fridge for about 15mins and turn the oven to 180⁰C. Once chilled, place tray in oven and bake for appx 8-10 minutes depending on size, until they are golden. Remove tray from the oven. The biscuits should still be slightly soft to touch. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy.

Coupe Sauvage was the brief. That French term from the 1970s encapsulating all lengths of very layered, textured, vibrant styles that hinted at the sexuality of wild, rampant and raw. And growing out tint isn't always successful, most people return to having colour, but Julie's was a rare case where the...

Where were you standing when you decided to adjust your hair colour? Do you stand there often?

At the first salon I worked as a junior, back in the last century, the colourists at the salon had an interesting technique for showing clients their finished results; escorting them to the ladies toilet where a single electric wall light seemed to cast a favourable glow.
