Oreshki "Russian walnut-shaped cookies"

January 3, 2019

Oreshki are very well known as smooth shortbread , walnut shaped Russian cookies. They are a very popular Russian treats, baked during holidays and special occasions. 



In Russian "oreshki" means walnuts. They are traditionally made in a special mold that is called "oreshnitsa", and after baked they are filled with caramel or dulce de leche :) 




Oreshki often require a special skillet/mold ,but I used a waffle maker that has 3 different shape attachments and one of them was the walnut cookie shape. 



Cookies are golden in color, crispy made of two components that are awesome together   which are : short crust cookies and caramel! falling in love with the first bite! 



Oreshki Russian Cookies 


2 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla 

200g of unsalted butter at room temperature 

1 cup powdered sugar 

2.5 cups plain flour

1 tbsp baking powder 

1 cup corn flour 

1 can of caramel 


Directions : 

- In a bowl Sift together:   plain flour,corn flour, and baking powder. Mix with a whisk, set a side.

- In a bowl of electric mixer with whisk attachment whisk the eggs ,vanilla and soft butter altogether very well for 1 minute.

- Change the whisk with the K shaped attachment and start adding in gradually a little pit of the flour mixture  and beat after each addition until a dough formed and comes together. Don't over mix.

-Mix with hands until it forms a chunky soft dough. Divide the dough into 2 parts, cover and chill for 5 minutes

- Take one part of the dough and cut  and roll into small equal balls, around 6-7g in weight. 

- I am using a waffle maker with a special shape cookie attachment to cook them in. - Cook them for 2-3 min until they are done and have a light golden color.

- Repeat the process with all dough balls, until all of them are done. Some will have edges that you will need to trim. Leave cookies to cool down completely.

- Add half a tsp of caramel inside each half and glue them together. Set the aside to set completely then put on a serving plate and enjoy! :)
