In Response to Re: 2011 CHRISTMAS COOKIE EXCHANGE:
I love this idea as I am always looking for something new. The females in my family do an ornament and cookie exchange every year and it is nice to have something different to share. Here is a dairy free recipe for you. Tahini Cookies 6 Tbsp Tahini 1/2 cup honey 1 Tsp. vanilla 3/4 Tsp. ground cinnamon 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts) 1/4 cup craisins (or raisins) Directions 1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. (I use parchment paper instead) 2. In a medium bowl, stir together Tahini, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix in pecans, oats and craisins until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart. 3. Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven, or until edges are golden brown and tops are slightly brown. Cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
