Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and line two baking trays with baking paper or silicone baking mats.
Use a wooden spoon to cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the tahini and vanilla, and beat together until smooth. Mix the baking powder and flour in another bowl then gradually beat into the creamed tahini mixture to make a dough.
Divide the dough into 15 pieces, then roll each into a ball and put on the lined baking trays, leaving a little space between them to spread during baking. Gently flatten the balls with a fork, then bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops have cracked and the biscuits are pale golden. Leave the cookies to cool and harden on the paper – if you eat them while they are still warm they will just crumble.
