In a jug whisk together dairyfree milk, tahini, honey (or syrup) and squeeze of lemon juice.
Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir until it forms a slightly sticky soft dough. With a small icecream scoop or teaspoon put the mixture into the baking sheet in little dollops, hence the cookie dumpling name - they don't spread when cooked so retain this pretty little shape!
Bake for 15mins until golden brown on the edges and leave to cool. Finally for an extra little bit of a treat drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with crushed cashew nuts.
