Recipe: Cinnamon Pastries with Tahini

Dessert recipes with spices and herbs
December 26, 2009

Yesterday I went to the garden to harvest some aromatic herbs and I found some ripen Rocotillo.

Christmas Rocotillo Decoration

These chilies are really awesome and I put them on the Christmas tree.


SchiacciataI cooked many traditional recipes for Christmas, from every part of the world.
Here in Sicily a must is schiacciata, a closed pizza stuffed with broccoli, sausage, olives and cheese.


I had some pizza dough leftovers, and I use them for these pastries.
