  • Vegetarian Diet

    Diet based on cereals, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits and other animal foods such as honey and eggs. Excludes meat, fish, mollusks.


For the syrup

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a pot. As soon as they come to a boil and the sugar melts, remove pot from heat. Set aside so the syrup can cool.

For cookies

  • In a standing mixer’s bowl, add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, butter cubes, water, cinnamon baking powder, vanilla, eggs and ground walnuts.
  • Beat with the paddle attachment on low speed at first. After 2 minutes, increase speed and beat for a while longer, until the mixture turns into a soft and elastic dough.
  • Spread the puff pastry sheet on a working surface. Roll it out a little with a rolling pin. Cut in half, widthwise.
  • Divide the dough in half and knead each half into a roll the length of the puff pastry. Place each roll onto each half of the puff pastry, lengthwise.
  • Roll the dough in the puff pastry. Seal the edge of the puff pastry by pressing with your fingers and brushing some egg on it. This will make it stick and stay in place.
  • You should have 2 rolls. Wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in the freezer. When frozen, remove and slice into 2 cm rounds.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Place rounds in baking pan. Cover with a towel and let them rest for 30 minutes. Brush with egg.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven. Immediately submerge each round in cold syrup for 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a wire rack.
  • Serve.
