DREA’S NUSSECKEN


DREA’S NUSSECKEN
I promise you, these nut corners are addictive. The brown sugar gives the nut topping a caramel note.
Shortcrust pastry:
300 g of flour
130 g sugar
2 eggs
vanilla pod
1 teaspoon of baking powder
130 g soft butter

Slit the vanilla pod lengthwise and push out the pith with the back of the knife. Make a shortcrust pastry out of all the ingredients in the food processor. The dough does not stick at all and can be immediately pressed or rolled out on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.

Covering:
4 heaped tablespoons apricot jam
vanilla pod
200 g butter
5 tablespoons of rum, alternatively water
200 g brown sugar
200 g ground hazelnuts
200 g of chopped hazelnuts
200 g chocolate grease glaze

Melt butter, rum, sugar, vanilla in a saucepan, so that the sugar dissolves. Then add the nuts and mix.

Spread the shortcrust pastry with the apricot jam and then spread the nut mixture evenly over it.
Bake at 175 ┬║ Celsius for 30 – 35 minutes.
Cool completely, is also good overnight. Then cut into squares and halve them again.
If desired, garnish with chocolate icing or dip the corners.
