• 1 cup farina (Cream of Wheat)
  • ⅓ cup pine nuts
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Mix the water, sugar, and cinnamon together in a saucepan and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Using about ⅓ of the stick of butter, brown the pine nuts.
  3. Add the remaining butter and farina and stir until the farina is a light brown color.
  4. Very carefully add the cinnamon syrup to the farina mixture.
  5. Stir until most of the water is absorbed and forms a sticky mixture.
  6. Remove from the heat and leave uncovered for 1 hour, until it dries to a crumbly consistency.
  7. Shape in individual molds or spoon into dishes.
  8. Serve at room temperature topped with ground cinnamon and sesame seeds.
