Simit is a Turkish delicacy like the American bagel.

1 cup of sesame seeds
3 cups of Augason Farms Gluten-free French bread mix (or any other gluten-free bread mix)
400 grams of tapioca starch (14 oz)
1/4 cup Lukewarm water
2 tablespoons of yeast
1/4 cup Molasses (it is available from Middle Eastern grocery stores)

Preheat oven it 375 degrees F.

Toast the sesame on the pan or oven, be careful not to burn it.

Mix the  GF French Bread Mix, tapioca starch, and the lukewarm water together.

Cut the dough into pieces.

Roll the individual pieces out into a strip.

Fold the strip over.

Twist the two pieces together.

 Pinch the dough in the end to attach them together.

Brush on the molasses, and dunk the dough into the sesame seeds.

Let it rise ½ an hour to 40 minutes.

Put it into the oven.

Bake until they are crispy on the outside.

Enjoy!!! Special thanks to my dad for helping out!
