7 gr instant yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup milk, warm
3 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 cup sugar
Start by mixing the filling ingredients. In a large bowl, melt the yeast with sugar and milk. Add in the butter and flour slowly, knead well. Cut the dough in 5 equal pieces with a knife. Roll out each piece until they are thin and a round shape (doesn't have to be perfectly round).
Spread the filling with a spoon on the doughs equally (picture). Roll them up (picture) and let them sit for 30 minutes at room temperature on the counter. Then hold with each hand the ends of the roll and swing them in circles to get it longer and thinner (picture). Then wrap them up like a cinnamon roll (picture).
Place parchment paper on an oven tray and arrange the doughs on it. Let them rest for 10 more minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake for about 30 minutes.
