I cut this down for 10 bars and they are very good. Think I will add more lemon zest next time. I served this with a Greek meal for dessert. Used parchment paper to spread it on and then flattened it with the sides of the paper. Very easy to do.

WHAT A GREAT TASTING TREAT! I made this for one of the monthly groups I host, & enjoyed the unusualness of this snack! The group loved it & several asked for the recipe! "2 slices of lemon zest," was a little vague, however, since my zester gives long fine strips, so I simply improvised by using a very rounded teaspoonful! This is certainly something I'll be making again & again! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef]

Exactly what I was looking for! Loved the addition of lemon zest to this, really helped temper the sweetness, will be making regularly.

Made this for my daughter's ancient civilization food day and it was a big hit. (I sent a sheet with some of the many interesting facts and history I found on pasteli) My husband sneaked some before it went out the door and then he sneaked some more. (always a good sign he likes something) It was easy to make after I found the sesame seeds in bulk at the local health foods store. I toasted my seeds some before adding them to the heated honey giving it an extra nutty flavor. I would like to try adding chopped almonds next time. I also recommend pouring the mixture onto parchment paper, I just peeled my bars of the back of it after lifting it out of the pan. Definitely try these!
