How to make it

  • Make the pastry:
  • Combine cheese, butter and egg yolks, and cream them together with a wooden spoon until almost smooth
  • In a tablespoon, combine vinegar and baking soda, they should foam; pour the foaming mix into the pasty mix.
  • Add pinch of salt
  • Add flour in small batches until soft dough forms. Stop adding flour when dough doesn't stick to your hands anymore
  • Put pasty in the fridge to chill covered with plastic wrap
  • -
  • Prepare filling:
  • Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they form peaks and you can literally turn the bowl over without spilling any whites
  • Add sugar in small batches and keep whisking until sugar dissolves
  • Add vanilla, freshly ground nutmeg and a tiny pinch of ground cloves.
  • Toss in chopped walnuts and mix well
  • -
  • Roll the dough out on a surface to about 3/8 inch thickness. Try to roll it into a rectangular shape
  • Spread the filling all over the dough, don't miss spots
  • Roll the dough up into a scroll, it's OK if filling is oozing a little
  • Dip the knife in flour and cut the scroll into 1/2 to a 3/4 inch thick slices
  • Place the cookies on a floured baking sheet flat, leaving about 1-1/2 inch space between them
  • Bake in preheated oven at 350F for 15-18 minutes, or until filling is pleasantly light brown and crunchy.
  • Cool on rack completely, or serve slightly warm
