These Tahini Swirls are a common street food in Lebanon (from what I understand) and incredible as a brunch item. I made these this evening for a brunch tomorrow. They are made from a yeast bread rolled into 10 inch by 5 inch squares, spread with a paste of tahini, sugar, kosher salt, and almond paste and then twisted into spirals. You then roll these out flat with a rolling pin, brush with milk or an egg wash, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and freshly ground sea salt. They are around 8-10 inches in diameter and one 1/2 of these swirls is plenty for a quick breakfast. They are to die for and worth trying.
As you might surmise, these can be a bit painstaking to prepare, but if you are into this particular form of punishment (as I am), these are absolutely worth the labor. The recipe is quite long and I am loathe to transcribe it this evening (now nearly midnight), but I will happily send it along to anyone interested in giving it a shot. Just shoot me an email.
