Simit (Turkish Croissant With Sesame Seeds) Recipe

Step 1

Put the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a hole in the middle. Into this hole pour the melted marg, olive oil, milk, water and beaten egg.

Step 2

Stirring from the outside into the middle gradually mix all the liquids into the flour until you have a dough. It will feel a bit oily, but is quite manageable. With floured hands shape the dough into rings about the diameter of a saucer and arrange them on a baking sheet. Brush them over with milk and sprinkle the sesame seeds on them. Bake them in a 400 degree oven for approx. 30 min. or until they are nicely browned.
