walnut puffs

I realised it's been a while since I posted a walnut recipe! As mentioned earlier there's no shortage of walnuts here so this morning I made bread (with walnuts) and puffs (with walnuts)!

Walnut Puffs

125g (4oz) softened butter
2 tbsps caster sugar
150g (5oz) ground walnuts
150g (5 oz) plain flour
icing sugar

Cream the butter then beat in the caster sugar.
Mix in the nuts and then the flour.
Roll into walnut sized balls. Bake at 160ยบ fan for about 20 minutes or
until pale golden.  Remove from oven and immediately roll in icing
sugar. They're fragile at this point so go easy.
Cool on a rack. 

I keep them in a kilner jar and they stay fresh for well over a week.
They're very short and very delicious even (I think) if you weren't mad about walnuts!


  1. Do try them Olga - they're one of those recipes worth more than the sum of their parts!
