Quick and easy one-pot tahini, honey and almond cookies

Tahini in a cookie?! Once upon a time, I bought a jar of tahini and wrote to the company because it didn’t taste like hommus. True story. Yes, it’s in hommus and no, it doesn’t taste like hommus.

And because I am a human being who needs to sustain myself, cooking as well.
