Sesame Paste (Tahini) & Walnut Cookies (Tahinli&Cevizli Kurabiye)

1 cup sesame paste (tahini)
1 cup sugar
1 cup walnuts, crushed/ground
3 cups all purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
100 grams butter at room temperature
½ cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract/powder
1 tsp baking powder (optional)
 
Take tahini (sesame paste), canola oil, butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix them well and add walnuts, vanilla and baking powder (optional). Knead while adding flour slowly. Dough should be a little sticky, make sure it is not hard. Grab walnut size pieces and give them shape them in balls with your palms. Place them over a greased baking tray leaving some room in between. Bake them in a preheated 340F (175C) oven until they start getting cracks (for about 30 minutes). Take them out before they get pinkish/brownish. Let them cool and be careful while taking them from the tray, because they crumble easily.
ENJOY
P.S: This recipe makes about 35-40 pieces.
