Greek sesame pie


For the syrup

  • Place a pot, with all the ingredients inside, over high heat. When they come to a boil, when the sugar melts and the mixture becomes transparent, remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool.

For the dough

  • In a mixer’s bowl, beat all of the ingredients with the hook attachment for 5 minutes. If you don’t have a mixer, mix with your hands. 
  • As soon as the dough turns soft, elastic, and starts pulling away from the sides of the bowl, add it to another bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. 
  • Set it aside to rest for 30 minutes and then divide it into 5 balls.

For the filling

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C (300° F) set to fan.
  • In a baking pan add the sesame seeds, the almonds, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and as soon as they are cool, finely chop them in a food processor.  
  • Pour them into a bowl, add the sugar, the spices, and mix well.  

For the pie

  • Increase the oven’s temperature to 180°C (350° F) set to fan. 
  • With a rolling pin and a little flour, roll out each dough ball into a 1-2 mm thick sheet, in a rectangular shape. 
  • Spread 1/5 of the filling over each sheet and wrap it into a roll, by rolling from the wider side.
  • Add the rolls into a greased baking pan, grease them with olive oil and score them with a knife, creating diamond-shaped pieces. 
  • Bake them for 1 hour or until they are golden. 
  • Remove them from the oven and dip them into the cold syrup while they are still hot. 
  • Set aside for 30 minutes so that the pie absorbs the whole syrup, and then serve.
