Tahini Cookies

These cookies have an earthy, nutty taste with sesame seed butter, nuts, cinnamon, raisins, and oatmeal.

1/2 cup honey 
6 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed butter) 
1/4 cup walnuts or hazel nuts, chopped
1/4 cup raisins 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
Preheat oven to 350º F. Mix honey with the tahini. Add the nuts and raisins. Stir cinnamon into the oatmeal, mix well, and add to honey mixture. Drop by small spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until edges are brown.
