These delicious, gluten-free cookies are both chewy and crisp. “They’re like elegant, interesting versions of peanut butter cookies,” one F&W editor says. Slideshow: Great Gluten-Free Desserts

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350° and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread the sesame seeds in a pie plate.

Step 2    

In a small bowl, whisk the almond flour with the baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, mix the honey with the tahini and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well incorporated.

Step 3    

Using a 1 1/2-inch scoop, scoop the dough into balls. Roll the balls in the sesame seeds, then flatten them into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Transfer the rounds to the baking sheets, arranging them so they’re about 2 inches apart.

Step 4    

Bake the cookies for about 8 minutes, until the bottoms are golden; shift the pans from top to bottom halfway through. Transfer the cookies to a rack and let cool before serving.
