  3. Coat one half with tahini with the help of a brush.
  4. Sprinkle 2 tbsp sugar on it.

  6. Roll it firmly and cut into pieces.
  7. Repeat the same for the other half.
  8. Preheat the oven at 180C.
  9. Place a baking paper in an oven tray.

You can drizzle a little honey on them just before serving if you want them to be sweeter.

You can increase the amount of sugar up to 6 or 8 tbsp depending on your taste.

I use phyllo sheets for baklava, which are sold packaged at the markets here as they are thinner than our regular phyllo sheets. If you can’t find it, just use your regular phyllo.
