White Chocolate & Tahini Cookie Recipe

These cookies featured in one of our first dessert boxes and the balance of nuttiness & sweetness with the white chocolate was simply amazing! We thought we’d share this recipe from our south coast restaurant chefs so you can whip up these delicious cookies for yourself at home.

Not a white chocolate fan? No worries – you can swap it our for dark or even milk chocolate, whatever takes your fancy. We hope you love creating this Cupitt’s Estate treat at home for yourself!
