Hungarian Walnut Cookies
Total TimePrep: 50 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
A test baking of a few of these was a big fail for me. No sugar in the dough or salt, left it tasteless. Not enough sweetness or any salt in the filling. There are much easier and tastier recipes for the flavor profile, and I'm going to try to salvage the rest of the dough and filling to avoid the waste of so much invested in butter and nuts.
I was looking to replicate my late mother-in-law’s Hungarian nut cookie. After trying several recipes without success, I found this recipe! It tastes just like hers! I made no adjustments. 3-1/2 cups of chopped nuts was about a 16oz can of walnut pieces and i had exactly enough. I used a ruler to make the 3” squares and that made a uniform appearance for each cookie. Thank you for posting this recipe. My husband is very very happy now that I can make his fav cookie.
