Walnut Shaped Cookies - a Slavic recipe

Today I want to introduce you a recipe for cookies that fit perfectly into the mini cookie moulds that we offer on our website, Chezvera.com. These cookies are traditionally prepared at Christmas in the Czech Republic. We use the mini moulds in the shape of walnuts, that’s why the cookies are called "filled walnuts".

I like baking cookies in these moulds because the recipe usually turns out very well and the preparation is easy. It's also great that the cookies come out easily thanks to the non-stick Teflon material. These treats will definitely surprise you. You can also use these moulds for chocolate or marzipan, whatever you like. :-)




250 g flour

100 g powdered sugar

1 egg yolk

120 g butter

1 tablespoon cocoa powder


For the cream:


150 g softened butter

100 g powdered sugar

1 egg yolk

100 g ground walnuts

2 tablespoons rum (optional)




Sift the flour, add the softened butter, sugar, egg yolk and cocoa powder and knead into a firm ball. Leave to rest in a cool place.

Press the dough into the prepared mini moulds so that it doesn’t overflow.

Bake at 180° for about 7 to 12 minutes. Remove the baked cookies by gently tapping the mould on the work surface. Be careful not to burn your fingers.


Buttercream filling:


Beat the softened butter with the powdered sugar, add the egg yolk, the ground walnuts and rum. Leave it to rest in the fridge for an hour before decorating.




Once the cookies have cooled down, fill one cookie with the buttercream filling and place another cookie on the top. Use a piping bag that you fill with the cream.

Store the cookies in a closed box in a cool place. They will soften after a few days.
