Orange Blossom Tahini Cookies

These flourless cookies embody some of the best flavours of the Middle East and are made with whole food unrefined ingredients such as ground almonds, tahini, orange blossom water and pistachios for a cookie that you can feel good about indulging in.


1/2 C Blanched Almonds (80 gr)
3 Tbsp Tahini (I used hulled and roasted here for flavour and the runny consistency)
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, solid but slightly softened
2 Tbsp Brown Rice Syrup
1/2 Tsp Orange Blossom Water
Crushed pistachio nuts, for topping


  1. Add almonds to a food processor and grind until you have a coarse meal.
  2. Add cold coconut oil and pulse, then add brown rice syrup, tahini and orange blossom water and process until it all comes together to form a paste.
  3. Remove the mixture from the food processor onto a piece of parchment paper and press together into a ball. Roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 – 60 minutes.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and work quickly to form 9 cookie dough balls. Press one side of the cookie dough balls into the crushed pistachio nuts, flattening the cookie slightly into a small disk.
  5. Place cookies on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, pistachio side up, making sure to leave space between them so they can spread, and bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until the edges turn golden. Be careful not to over bake them as almond meal tends to burn quickly.
  6. Remove from panggangan and let cool completely. Do not attempt to take them off the tray while they’re still hot as they will fall apart. Once cooled, serve with tea or coffee, or chomp on them alone.
  7. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
