Yield: 18 cookies


6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons sesame tahini
2 tablespoons date sugar (optional)
1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons soy milk or milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup coarsely ground pecans
1/3 cup chopped pecans
15 pecans halved


• Cream the softened butter or margarine with the tahini, date sugar, stevia extract, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Lightly beat the soymilk or milk with the eggs, and mix into the batter.
• Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder together. Coarsely grind the pecans in a blender, and measure out 1/2 cup. Chop the pecans and measure out 1/3 cup. Mix the flour, ground pecans, and chopped pecans into the batter. The batter should pull away from the sides of the bowl. If the batter is too sticky, add 1 or 2 tablespoons more flour. Be careful not to add too much flour.
• Refrigerate the batter for several hours or more.
• Preheat the oven to 350°F. Oil a cookie sheet.
• Shape the dough into balls with your hands. Flatten the balls with the palm of your hand on the cookie sheet. Press a pecan half in the center of each cookie. Bake for 15 minutes.
