Walnut cookies bring my childhood memories. We had holidays every winter, when everyone had to cook something and bring it at school festive fair. Every year I cooked walnut shaped cookies with my mum, and every time the bowl was empty in just few minutes! Everyone loved them.
It’s not hard to make them, but you will need walnut shape pan or walnut shaped cookie molds that I have. There are plenty variations available.
In the childhood we had to boil the usual condensed milk for caramelization, so it becomes thicker and gets brown color. But, you know, it could explode during the cooking, and it needed time to cool down too. Now it’s available in store, be sure to grab “caramelized condensed milk” or “boiled condensed milk”, it should be the right consistency, not runny!
So shortcrust pastry and caramelized condensed milk – nothing wrong with it! Simple, lovely, sweet taste. Every kid will be happy, and, you know, adults will be too! So make a plenty of them!
