Nussecken

Another recipe for Nussecken :

Ingredients:

For the dough :

300 g wheat flour

130 g sugar

130 g butter ,room temperature

2 eggs

Pinch of ground vanilla or extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

For the topping:

5 tablespoons apricot jam

200 g ground hazelnuts or almonds

200 g chopped hazelnuts or almonds

200 g butter

200 g sugar

Pinch of vanilla

5 tablespoons water

Material you need :

Parchment paper

Mixer

kitchen sieve

Tablespoon

Teaspoon

Sharp knife

Preparing the dough :

Beat the eggs . Add on butter and mix to plain batter . Add ground vanilla and sugar . Combine baking powder and flour and add to the batter through a kitchen sieve to avoid lumps in the dough . Mix until you get a plain dough ,which is kind of sticky .

Spread it everywhere:

Cover your baking pan with parchment paper and spread the dough evenly. Use a spoon to make patches of dough on the paper .It is easier if you start from different spots than starting with one big patch in the middle . Cover your hands with flour on your hands will help prevent sticking on your fingers . Spread 5 tablespoons of apricot jam on the dough . Set everything aside.

Create the topping:

Use a pot to melt the butter. When the butter has melted add the sugar and the water . Carefully boil for a few (2 to 3) minutes . Add the chopped and ground hazelnuts and stir well, take of the stove . Distribute the hazelnuts mixture over the dough . Start with spots and fill up the gaps until the baking pan is evenly covered.

Cut the corners :

Bake with circulating air at 180° C for approx .10 minutes, until the nut mixture is golden and the edges are slightly browned .

Take out when finished and put on an oven proof surface . Take your knife and directly start to cut . If you wait until the pan is cooled down it will be difficult to cut the triangles without getting to many crumbs . Be careful the baking pan is very hot -since it just came out of the oven . Start cutting the vertical lines and continue with the horizontal lines . Finish your nut corners with diagonal cuts .Set aside to cool completely down.

Finish the nut corners :you can cover the nut corners with dark chocolate,which is a nice add on .
