Simit (Sesame Rings)


  • 8 ounces flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons (½ stick) margarine, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon milk, plus extra
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a hole in the middle.
  3. Into this hole pour the margarine, olive oil, milk, water, and beaten egg.
  4. Stirring from the outside into the middle, gradually mix all the liquids into the flour until you have a dough. It will feel a bit oily.
  5. With floured hands, shape the dough into rings about the diameter of a saucer, and arrange them on a baking sheet.
  6. Brush them over with milk and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
  7. Bake them for about 30 minutes, or until they are nicely browned.
