Kesme Helva

Kesme Helva

My mother-in-law cooks this kesme helva whenever I want. This is a great dessert that you can have by the 5 PM tea. It melts in your mouth and you feel it on every side of your tongue. It is really easy. You can decorate it with chocolate sauce if you wish.

  1. Step 1

    Put flour in a wide saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until fragrant, about 15 minutes. Don't let it turn yellow. Add sugar slowly, mixing well, until combined.
  2. Step 2

    Add melted butter and vanilla to the mixture. Mix all by a spoon or your hands, but be careful, as it can be very hot, until it has a sand-like consistency. Transfer to a 9x9-inch pan, pressing down as much as you can.
  3. Step 3

    Cut the mixture into a baklava shape or squares.
  4. Step 4

    Chill until set, 1 to 2 hours. Serve.
