Recipe by Meirav Gavish

<em>Malfuf</em> (Grilled Cabbage)

Tahini and Almond Cookies

Recipe by Natalie Levin

Tahini and Almond Cookies

Tahini is one of my favorite spreads, and I use it on a daily basis. It’s made entirely of sesame seeds and has a rich, nutty flavor with luscious texture. These are the most addictive cookies ever. They’re so easy to make and are such a great treat with your coffee.
