Nutritional Guidelines (per serving)

(Nutrition information is calculated using an ingredient database and should be considered an estimate.)


  1. Microwave 1 tablespoon (15 mL) water and add saffron; let stand until cool. Add remaining 2 tablespoons (30 mL) chilled water to saffron water. (If not using saffron, skip this step.)
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, turmeric and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in Becel until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl combine tahini (if using) and saffron-water mixture (or chilled water). Stir into flour mixture.
  3. Gather mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together; Divide dough in half and flatten into two disks. Wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll one disk of dough to ⅛-inch (3 cm) thickness. Using a 4½-inch (12 cm) round cutter, cut dough into 5 rounds, rerolling scraps only once. Repeat with remaining dough. Place rounds on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets.
