A Note From Sina Mizrahi

Its sweet nuttiness and smooth, dense texture makes halva an irresistible confection. Typically made from fusing sesame paste (tahini) with a sweet syrup, the candy comes in a myriad of flavors with vanilla, chocolate, and pistachios being the most popular. I've had a whiskey halva that's worth a flight from wherever to enjoy a slice at the Jerusalem shuk. There is also shredded halvah which comes as thin strands that melt in your mouth and feel like grown-up cotton candy. Fold it into your cake batter, crumble it on your granola, churn it with ice cream, or simply eat it sliver by sliver. There are countless ways to enjoy halva so scroll down for some inspiration.

Tahini Shortbread Cookies

The most beautifully textured cookie in the world is what your looking at right now. These tahini shortbread cookies are ALL of the mouthfeel. It's pretty much like eating the most delicate, buttery, crumbly halva known to man. And you, yes I'm talking to you, could actually be eating this super soon especially since there's only like 6 ingredients-besides my own additions. I almost didn't eat 5 of these babies but then I did. And I don't even regret it. I add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of rosewater to enhance the taste but that's optional. Also, these would be so good with chocolate. Then again, anything is good with chocolate.

Banana And Cinnamon Bread With Halva Icing

Banana and cinnamon bread with halva icing! Am I the only one that never intentionally makes banana bread unless I've got a couple of bananas on death's row? For this one, I took a traditional banana bread recipe, added some spices and made halva icing for the first time. I'd recommend drizzling the icing right before you serve!

Pomegranate Tahini Shake

Current obsession: this Pomegranate Tahini Shake. It's actually a super healthy smoothie but tastes like liquid halva (tahini + honey) with a pomegranate twist, so calling it a shake feels totally appropriate. Frozen banana, whole sesame tahini, raw honey, + @navitasnaturals pomegranate powder. Dessert for breakfast, anyone?

A Note From Sina Mizrahi

It's that time of year again when cozy socks and warm winter scarves make their debut. But is there anything more comforting than a hot cup of cocoa especially when tahini is involved?!
