Salted Smoked Sesame, Tahini, Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar

Makes 16 bars

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1/3 cup tahini, stirred

1 large egg

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 tablespoon Bourbon Barrel Aged Madagascar Vanilla Extract

1 teaspoon Bourbon Smoked Salt + more for sprinkling

1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour

1 cup chocolate chips

2 tablespoons Bourbon Smoked Sesame Seeds

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9” x 9” pan with foil or parchment and grease or spray with a non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the melted and cooled butter, tahini, egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and smoked salt. Whisk to combine.

2. Add the flour, chocolate chips, and smoked sesame seeds. Stir until just combined. Pour into prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle top with a little more smoked salt, if desired. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until light, golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean, with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely before cutting into 16 bars.
