Low Carb Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter Cake

Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter CakeTahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter Cake is really a combination of two recipes already on the site. It is ½ a recipe of Peanut Butter Cake/Peanut Butter Icing and ½ a recipe Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut Balls done with a #100 (very tiny) scoop. For perspective: the plate on the bottom right is 5″ and the scoop is 1⅛”.  The “tiny cookie” part of this recipe equals about 4½ cookies per 1 of the larger balls.  Anyway they are insanely delicious and as you only need 10 small balls to top the cake you should have about 18 leftover to pop in your mouth or…to make those cake pops that seem to be so popular.  As comparison: they are about the size of an old tootsie roll pop.  I happen to have three 7” cake pans that I bought at a restaurant supply store 20 years ago and I used two of them so I could get a little more frosting in the center.  Yeah, the icing is that good.  If you don’t happen to have a #100 scoop then make rounded teaspoonsfuls in your hands. How about the word teaspoonsfuls? (I had to look it up and it still shows as a misspelling).  If you don’t have two 7″ cake pans then use one 8″ round pan. The cake is extremely high fat. (See Nutritionals inside the recipe).  I use Byrd Mill Peanut Flour .

This can be a bit time consuming but can easily be divided into a two-day affair.  1st day make the cookies and the 2nd day make the cake, frosting and decorate it.  One thing you will need to be careful with is eating the cookies before you get the cake made or you will be back to square one.  Good idea to look at both recipes before you begin but this is pretty straight forward.  I have divided the whole recipe into two parts so it is easy to follow.  If you have a family of 5 this will last for two servings each or…it makes for a great dinner party dessert.

Now I know some of you “guys” out there are going to, or might, be a little squeamish while we discuss ball sizes and you are going to have to get over it.  We aren’t talking about men, we are talking cookies here.
