In our Christmas bakery …
… we’re baking walnut biscuits!
Delicious and easy to make: walnut biscuits. We share our recipe for this classic with you.
At our family hotel in Italy, we’re already preparing for Christmas. Here comes our special recipe: walnut biscuits.
For about 40 biscuits, you need:
- 300g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100g icing sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 50g chopped walnuts
- 250g butter
- Margarine for greasing
And here’s what you do:
Combine the flour, baking powder, icing sugar, salt, walnuts, and butter to form a smooth dough. Cover it with cling film and put it in the fridge to chill. After about an hour, roll out the chilled dough to a thickness of one centimetre and cut out your favourite shapes. Place the biscuits on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake them for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 200 degrees.
After cooling, you can decorate the walnut biscuits however you like: dip them in chocolate, sprinkle them with chocolate shavings, ice them with any colour … there are no limits to your imagination. Have fun!
