Soft round bites with walnut filling

A classic is a classic. I haven't done these in a very long time, so I made them again this year. It's a pain with them, but it's definitely worth it. Especially for those who love walnuts. The dough is not nutty, but the filling is, and the combination of chocolate and a whole walnut on top is excellent. It is not only pleasing to the eye, but also to the tummy. The filling was different in the original recipe, but I came back to my classic - walnuts and apricot jam.



5.5 oz
1 ¼ cups
powdered sugar
1 pack
vanilla sugar
2 pcs
egg yolk
2 tbsp
3 ⅓ cups
plain flour
a pinch
2 ½ tsp
baking powder


3.5 oz
ground walnuts
3 tbsp
apricot marmalade

Extra ingredients:

for coating
for decoration
walnut halves
Preparation steps
  1. Beat the butter with powdered and vanilla sugar until foamy, add the egg yolks, rum and then all the mixed loose ingredients. Make a ball, which you put in the fridge for an hour and then roll out a thin sheet from the dough.
  2. Cut out circles from the rolled out sheet of dough, which you bake on baking paper in a preheated oven at a temperature of 355 °F / 180 °C for 7 minutes (keep an eye on it, each oven bakes differently, the time is only indicative).
  3. Mix the ground walnuts with the marmalade - the quantity is also indicative only, it depends on the density of the marmalade. Make the filling so that it is neither too thick nor too thin.
  4. Put 2 circles together and then dip the top in the chocolate coating (I make the chocolate coating by melting high-percentage chocolate in a water bath and adding 1 tablespoon of butter per 3.5 oz of chocolate). Place half a walnut on top of the chocolate and let it harden.
