I'm slow on reviews....I made these last Christmas for a ladies luncheon. They were the first to go from my cookie platter. So light and airy. A very dainty cookie but with a great big taste. I will be making them again this coming christmas.
Love this recipe - definitely adding this to my holiday rotation! Both the dough and the filling are very tasty, very Eastern European. I made these for our Ukrainian school's St. Nicholas celebration (because our St. Nicholas traditionally leaves gifts under the pillow).I do find it tricky to get the filling not to leak, even though I did moisten the edges with water, sealed really well by hand, and pressed with a fork, even reduced the amount of filling to 3/4 tsp- maybe these need little slits on top? Anyway, the leaked filling can be cut away and there's still plenty inside.The egg wash needs to be heavy because the dough doesn't brown on its own.I made the dough in the food processor, after grinding the walnuts.
oh my gosh...these are now added to both my bakery menu and my Christmas cookie regulars. Easy to make and SO delicious!!!
I enjoyed making these beautiful things and enjoyed it even more when I saw the look on people's faces once they took a bite. Very unique kind of cookie ;)
