Those tahini pinwheels were brought us by Sena for last picnic. They look delicious. There were so many kinds of food that I couldn’t taste it. But it looks really beautiful !


  • 1 cup milk
    1 tsp sugar
    1 tsp dry active yeast
    3 and 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    ¾ cup cooking oil
    1 egg white and yolk separated

For filling

  • 12 tbsp Tahini
    12 tbsp granulated sugar


Blend milk and one tsp sugar together. Heat it till lukewarm. Sprinkle dry yeast over milk. Let it rise for 20 minutes.

Gradually add flour, egg white and oil. Mix them evenly and knead. Let it rise in a warm place for double size for about 30 minutes.

Knead the dough evenly and divide into 12 pieces. Make those pieces like balls. Roll each one as thin as you can.

When you finish rolling, spread 1 tbsp Tahini for each rolled dough. Sprinkle 1 tbsp granulated sugar over Tahini. That’s why we prepare 12 tbsp sugar and 12 tbsp tahini.

Wrap and Roll tight like burritos and give it a rose shape by turning itself like a spiral. Brush the egg yolk over each rose Pinwheels. Bake 350 F until lightly brown.
Or if you say it is a lot to do, you can roll the dough as a whole piece. Roll it as big and thin as you can.

Spread all 12 tbsp Tahini on one piece rolled Dough. Sprinkle 12 tbsp granulated sugar over tahini and roll up dough. Grease a cookie sheet. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Cut rolls into ¼ inch slices. Place each slice 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges lightly brown.
