Tahini Cinnamon Rolls with Rose Frosting

Ordinary cinnamon rolls these are not. Nutty, rich tahini helps to keep these rolls from being overly sweet, and a rose-infused milk brings floral notes to the creamy frosting. The slight tang from sourdough starter adds depth and balances sweet and savory flavors. Topped with a blend of toasted black and white sesame seeds, coarse sugar, crushed rose petals, and flaky salt for crunch and subtle reinforcement of the flavors present. Garnishes like this add visual interest and textural contrast, but they also offer the lucky eater a hint of what they're in for.
