Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings: 24 walnut bites



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • tsp vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp whole milk
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, measured then sifted
  • 3/4 cups chopped walnuts



  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter and remove from heat.
  • Add milk into a bowl. Combine together the baking soda and vinegar and add to the milk.
  • Add the melted butter and whisked egg and mix. (The butter should not be hot, just very warm.)
  • Add the sifted flour and mix until well incorporated. The dough will be hard and flakey.
  • Shape the dough into three large balls, and freeze on a plate lined with parchment paper for at least an hour (or overnight).
  • Preheat the oven at 355°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Grate the frozen dough. Spread the grated dough evenly between the baking sheets.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes. After about 15 minutes of baking, mix the flakes to ensure even baking. Bake another 10 minutes and mix again.
  • (Note: 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 and add to cooled flakes and mix.
  • Cream the butter and mix in the condensed milk.
  • In a bowl, combine the dough flakes and the cream and stir until well combined.
  • Tightly form 24 balls out of the mixture. For easier assembly work with damp hands.
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight. Dust tops of balls with powdered sugar before serving.
  • Enjoy.
