For the Chocolate Filling

Preparing the Pastry

  • Sift the flour and salt in a medium-size bowl.
  • Add the cornflour, 1 egg, 1 egg white, carbonated or sparkling water and vegetable oil.
  • Combine all together and knead for a couple of minutes to make a soft and smooth dough.

Shaping the Chocolate Pastry Rolls

  • Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and turn them into balls. They should weigh approximately 95 grams each.
  • Take a dough ball and roll it out into a 10 cm Ø circle on a lightly oiled surface.
  • Spread the ⅛ of the soft butter on the dough circle and fold it from the sides to form a square parcel.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough balls, transfer them on a plate or tray, cover with cling film and refrigerate them for 15 minutes.
  • Take them out of the fridge and roll them out into a square shape of approximately 20 cm.
  • Fold them again into small square parcels and refrigerate for another 15 minutes. Repeat the same procedure 2 more times (3 folds in total).
  • Preheat the oven to 170 °C.
  • For the filling, mix sugar and tahini in a bowl.
  • Take the pastries out of the fridge, place 1 square parcel on a lightly oiled worktop and roll it out into a 20 cm square.
  • Spread ⅛ of the tahini on the pastry, sprinkle on the walnuts and the chocolate. 
  • Gently roll the dough into a log shape. 
  • Cut the log into 4 pieces. Repeat the same with the remaining 7 square parcels. You will have 32 small pastries in total.
  • Place them on a baking paper lined trays.
  • Mix the egg yolk with yoghurt in a small bowl and eggwash the pastries with a pastry brush.
  • Sprinkle on sesame seeds and bake them for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
