Soft Walnut Dessert

Updated: Jul 4

  • This recipe deviates from the original recipe of traditional walnuts that are made for the Christmas holidays. In each of these classics, egg whites without yolks are used. Somehow I was sorry not to use the yolk, and for those reasons I made an excellent combination of similar walnuts where the whole egg is used. The process is similar to classic walnuts, and believe me, it's very tasty. This dessert goes fantastically with coffee or cappuccino. I usually make it often. It is quick to make and very simple! Check out some tricks down in the notifications. Follow recipe.

Ingredients: simple, total time: 60 min., 27 pieces
  • 2 eggs

  • 180 g granulated sugar

  • 1 bag vanilla sugar/ 10 g

  • 1 clementine juice/ 60 ml — optional

  • 300 g ground walnuts

  • 200 chopped walnuts for rolling

  • powdered sugar as you like/ optional

  1. Grind one part of the walnuts on a machine and chop the other part by hand or in a super chopper. Place in separate containers.

  2. In a glass container beat the eggs with a mixer, then add sugar, vanilla sugar, beat for a 3-minute on turbo speed.

  3. Switch to steaming the mixture.

  4. Steam the mixture in a glass bowl until the sugar is well absorbed, and the mixture becomes smooth and glossy. Turn off the heat and stir in the ground walnuts, and clementine juice with a spatula, until are uniform.

  5. Leave to cool down in refrigerator for about 30 minute.

  6. Place baking paper on a baking sheet.

  7. As for rolling this mixture, it's a bit of a tricky job, but it's worth it!

  8. Prepare two small spoons, one for scooping out the mixture, and the other for fixing the form. Don't worry if your form breaks, it happened to me, it's easy to fix! Scoop out a small teaspoonful of the mixture, create a ball, roll it well in chopped walnuts, sprinkle it from the top and sides then transfer it to a baking sheet. Fix the form with your fingers, use a spoon to flatten the rolls a little so that they are aligned and a crescent shape.

  9. Bake at 160 °C for 30 min.

  10. These rolls should be dried rather than baked! This dessert must not darken too much.

  11. Turn off the oven. Leave open door oven for another 10 minutes to dry these treats.

  12. Place them on a decorative tray, leave them uncovered to dry.

  13. If you want, you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar. I didn't, because I don't like full sugar intake. This is enough for me.

  14. Leave to cool, then serve.

Buon appetito!


  • Here are some little tricks if you don't have enough walnuts, and you really want to make this wonderful treat! My food suggestion, you can use crunchy muesli, oats, hazelnuts, or almonds for this dessert. I would use that to roll this incredible dessert, because the point of this treat is in the walnuts.

  • Instead of clementine juice, you can use lemon juice or half an orange juice. You don't have to add juice in this recipe. I used clementine juice.

  • The treat is kept on a decorative tray in a dry place without covering.
