Recipe type/ Τύπος Πιάτου: Dessert
Cuisine/ Κουζίνα: Greek
Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 300 gr./11 oz. tahini
  • 100 gr.4 oz. sugar
  • 70 gr./2.5 oz. honey
  • 1 vanillin or ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup almonds, blanched
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Pour the tahini in your mixer bowl and put the paddle.
  2. Preheat oven to 175° C/ 350° F.
  3. Place the almonds in tray and put them in the oven for about five minutes.
  4. Be careful and don’t leave the oven unattended because they are burnt very easily. Trust me on that, experience talks.
  5. Remove from the oven and put aside.
  6. In a medium pot add the sugar on medium heat.
  7. When it starts to boil remove immediately and add the honey.
  8. Whisk to incorporate.
  9. Turn on the mixer to second gear and start pouring little by little the caramelized sugar.
  10. You will see that as you pour the caramel the tahini starts to thicken and gather around the paddle. Whisk for a minute and it is done.
  11. Put it in a glass or metal mold and let it rest and cool for about two hours.
  12. Serve with sprinkled cinnamon.
