Step by step recipe
- 1: Start by roast 125 g walnut kernels: put on a baking sheet and put in the oven at 300°F (150°C) for 10 minutes.
Walnut should dry without coloring.
- 2: Let cool, then mix to get a powder.
- 3: In a food processor bowl, pour 125 g butter and 125 g icing sugar, start at low speed and kneed until homogeneous mixture.
- 4: Add 250 g flour and 1 egg, and continue to kneed until homogeneous mixture.
- 5: Make a kind of ball with the dough.
- 6: And put it between 2 plastic film sheets to make a kind of thick circle.
Put in the fridge for at least 2 hours or a night, otherwise 30 minutes in the freezer.
We do that because dough is very very soft at ambient temperature.

Spread the dough, not too thin, on the working surface, and cut in circles...

Let cool on a wire rack.
