Bread Baking Babes & Friends Third Anniversay

To celebrate the Third Anniversary of the Bread Baking Babes & Friends, I chose to re-do a bread that didn't turn out exactly as expected.

Sukkar bi Tahin is a delicious treat, a sweet roll filled with a mixture of tahini and sugar. The first time I made these, I apparently didn't notice that my tahini was actually a tahini dip that included garlic and savory spices. Did I mention the garlic?

My goodness, who'd have thought that garlic and sugar wouldn't be the best of combinations?

The dough itself was soft and lovely, but a bit recalcitrant when rolled. I had the same experience this time, too, but I was determined to be patient with it. Patience paid off, even at the expense of a gooped up pastry cloth. (That can be washed.)

So, I'm pleased to say, that there was success this time around, and that the filling is really quite delicious, even without the garlic.

Stop by Natashya's blog for the complete list of baked breads.

Head over to Tanna's blog for a round-up.

(Really? Garlic and sugar don't go together well? ;-))

Your rolls look lovely...who knew that there was a messy pastry cloth to go with :) Glad you made them without the garlic, too. Thanks for baking with the Babes!
