Delicious walnut cookies that are crunchy yet creamy. Easy cookies with dough flakes, walnuts, and condensed milk cream. Individual bite-sized desserts.
If you like individual-sized desserts, have you tried the Zakarpatski Palochki or Rogaliki? Individual sized desserts are wonderful because they are easier to serve but taste just as great.
I haven’t had the opportunity to bake with frozen dough before. I have never even heard of the concept if I am honest. If you haven’t either you are in for a treat. These walnut crunch bites and are so addictive!. It’s amazing how well the ingredients compliment each other. The unique crunchy flakes with walnuts and condensed milk cream are so delicious. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
how to make sweet crunch bites-
- In a large bowl, add milk. Mix together baking soda with vinegar, add to the milk.
- In a saucepan, melt the cubed butter. Remove from heat.
- Whisk an egg.
- Add the melted butter and egg to the milk and stir.
- Create a well in the flour and pour the butter and milk mixture into the well.
- Mix by hand or with a dough hook until combined. The dough will be hard.
- Shape three balls out of the dough.
- Cover tray with parchment paper. Add dough balls onto a tray and freeze for an hour or overnight.
- Grate the frozen dough. Spread the grated dough evenly onto two rimmed baking sheets.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 355°F for about 30-35 minutes.
- After about 15 minutes of baking, mix the flakes to ensure even baking. Bake another 10 minutes and mix again. The cooked flakes will have a nice golden color to them. Don’t overcook or else the flakes will burn in some areas. Let flakes cool completely before adding cream to them.
- Blend the walnuts. Don’t blend too fine, they should be small pieces but you should be able to taste them. Add to cooled flakes and mix.
- CREAM– Beat the butter until creamy, add the condensed milk and beat again. Add to the flakes/walnuts and mix with a spatula.
- Once everything is mixed lightly dampen your hands and make small balls, squeeze pack them together with both hands so they stick and won’t fall apart.
- There should be around 24 balls. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Dust tops of balls with powdered sugar before serving. (If balls are hard to shape, refrigerate for about half an hour to an hour, then shape.)
- The dessert can either be kept in the refrigerator or at room temperature. Half of my family prefers them cold the other room temp, try both.
