About Tahini Cheesecake Recipe:

Whether it is labeled as tahini, raw tahini, tahina or sesame paste, this quintessential middle eastern ingredient is also one of the most versatile. When raw, it is simply hulled and finely ground sesame seeds. Butmuch like raw peanut butterit can be used in both sweet and savory applications. It is mostly commonly combined with water, lemon juice, garlic, and spices to make a popular dip for pita bread or sauce for meat and roasted vegetables. The raw version is also extremely popular as an important ingredient in hummus and the eggplant spread, baba ganoush. When sweetened, however, it also becomes an excellent ingredient for desserts. Some forms of halvah, a popular middle eastern confection, are made with raw tahini, dairy, and a sweetener such as sugar or honey. The confection retains its nutty, sesame flavor while still being a tantalizing sweet treat. Likewise, tahini can be added to chocolate brownies and cookies for a great unique flavor. Because, like most seeds and nuts, sesame is full of fat, the tahini usually replaces some of the butter normally called for in recipes. And, since tahini pairs so well with dairy, it's a great ingredient in cheesecakes. This no-bake version is made with cream cheese, sugar, freshly whipped heavy cream and raw tahini with a graham cracker crust. It's a delicious spin on a classic.
