Cypriot Tahini Pies with Orange Flavor Recipe



Ingredients :

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar, divided
  • 1 ¼ cups warm water, divided
  • 1 ounce compressed fresh yeast
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons sesame seeds (Optional)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 1 ¼ cups tahini
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Combine 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 cup water, and yeast together in a small bowl. Stir well with a fork.

  • Step 2

    Sift bread flour and all-purpose flour together in a mixing bowl. Add salt and blend. Pour in yeast mixture. Start adding remaining water gradually; mix until dough comes together. Place dough on a flat work surface and knead until soft and smooth, about 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Transfer dough to a lightly greased bowl and cover. Place it a warm spot and let it rise for 45 minutes.

  • Step 4

    In the meantime, prepare the filling. Add remaining sugar, sesame seeds, cinnamon, and orange zest to the tahini. Mix well.

  • Step 5

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Step 6

    Flatten dough gently and cut into 8 equal pieces. Keep dough covered as you work with 1 piece at a time.

  • Step 7

    Roll out 1 piece of dough into a 6-inch disk. Place 2 tablespoons of the filling in the middle, gather up the edges in the center, and pinch to seal. Press down to flatten; roll back out into a 6-inch disk. Roll disk into a log about 12 inches long. Cut in half and stretch each piece out to make it a little longer. Roll in both ends towards the center, creating an 'S' shape. Fold 1 spiral over the other and flatten with your palm. Roll out slightly; transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Step 8

    Repeat step 6 with remaining dough and filling, making 16 hand pies in total. Keep finished pies loosely covered so they rise slightly while you finish the rest.

  • Step 9

    Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 18 minutes.
