Nussecken (German )


Yay!! This is my 100th post

I saved the Nussecken recipe for this special occasion.This is my favorite sweet treat from Germany.
Nussecken means Nut-corners.

For the base:
300 gr all purpose flour
160 gr butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
150 gr sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt

Knead a dough from the above ingredients and chill the dough for 30 min.

For the topping:
2 egg whites (beaten to stiff peak)
200 gr butter
200 gr sugar
4 tablespoons water
400 gr ground hazelnuts or almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons apricot jam

400 gr chocolate of your choice

Spread the dough for the base on a large baking tray with a rolling pin or your hands.
Cover the whole base thinly with apricot jam.
In a saucepan melt the butter,sugar,vanilla extract and water and bring to a boil.Mix the ground nuts in and remove from the fire.
Now fold in the egg whites carefully and spread the nutty mixture on the base.

Bake on medium high temp (175 Celsius ) for 25-30 min.Now cut your treat into little triangles quickly while it is still hot.A pizza cutter works perfectly.

Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in the microwave and dip your triangles into the chocolate so that all 3 sides are covered in chocolate.

Instead of the apricot jam you can also use marzipan and spread it all over the base.

Huggies and goood luck
