How to prepare:

Put tahin, the chopped seedless pepper and paprika powder in a bowl. Add some salt and mix well. Spread the slices puff pastry. Fold the sides of the puff pastry in, so the edges touch in the middle and fold once again towards the middle.

Place the dough 30 minutes in the fridge.

Preheat the oven to 200C/395F (fan oven 180C/360F).

Cover two baking sheets with baking paper. Cut the dough in slices of 1 cm and place on the sheets with the cutting edge up and little apart. Bake the butterflies 10-12 minutes on 1 side, turn and bake the other side 5-6 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
