    Posted: 01 October 2012 at 01:09



Ingredients for 8 pies: 

500 gr. all purpose, white flour
250 gr. water, warm
2 tablespoons oliveoil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dry yeast
1 teaspoon baking powder

also: 

8 tablespoons tahini paste
8 tablespoons sugar, white or brown or honey


Knead the dough, leave it covered to rest for 1 or 2 hours. Divide the dough on 8 small balls. Use a plaster to open each to a small round sheet. Spread the tahini and sprinkle the sugar or add the honey.  Roll and tie the pie in a small knot.

Place baking paper in the baking pan, and bake in preheated oven on 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes.

Souvlaki, Buon Giorno,
 
Thanks for your very interestingly combined savoury and sweet sesame seed paste called Tahini, pastry recipe.
 
This is a family secret, undoubtedly and assuredly LOL ...
 
I shall have to try this recipe out when we are on vacation in December / January and have time to play in the kitch.
I very much would like to try it out with some Spanish Mountain Honey with Eucalyptus, Lavendar & Rosemary...
 
Kindest regards.
Ciao, Margi.

It is not a family secret hehhehe, they make this pies in Greece. The fact is that children love them and it is a good snack for the school. 
Greeks use tahini a lot. And I am happy about that because sessame seeds contain calcium that is good for our bones. 
I make a tahini and lemon sauce for my spanakorizo - spinach and rice stew
we put tahini in bread also, called lagana

and in pesto they sometimes use tahini instead of pine seeds

or just mix tahini and honey and spread it on a slice of bread

I would gladly have a few of these for breakfast, Souvlaki, in fact they look somewhat like special breadrolls or "buns" as they seem to call them in english, this time with a sweet element added. Sounds like an interesting healthy alternative for croissants too! I had no idea you could add an equal amount of sugar or honey to tahini and use it in sweet dishes, seems a bit similar to peanut butter. Thanks for this nice idea Souvlaki!

And, if you have a bit of time, please post your spanakorizo with tahini and lemon sauce. Thanks!
