Mom has been here for a few days, which means we’ve been having feast- like dinners. As she knows how we are busy, she prepares wonderful dishes before I’m back from work. She went to Ankara (capital of Turkey) yesterday morning to visit her sister and turned back before evening. When I came back from school, I entered the kitchen first and opened the refrigerator to see what we had for dinner and guess what? There was a surprise waiting for me: These walnut rolls for my sweet tooth! And she also took these photos for my blog.
– 6 cups flour
– 150g butter, melted
– 2 eggs
– 1 cup yoghurt
– ½ cup warm water
– 1 tsp salt
– 2 cups crumbled walnut
– 3 cups sugar
– 3 cups water
– 1tbsp lemon juice
Combine all the ingredients for the dough well. And make a soft dough. Cover it with a wet piece of cloth and rest itfor about 40 minutes. Divide it into four balls. Roll each of them out. They shouldn’t be so thick. Try to make them as thin as you can. Sprinkle the crumbled walnut on them evenly.
Roll them up and cut them like coins.
Preheat the oven at 180C and cook it until they get golden.
Meanwhile you can prepare the syrup. Put sugar and water in a pot and stir until the sugar melts. When it boils, add lemon juice and boil for a few minutes more until it gets thicker. Then wait it until cold.
Take the walnut rolls out of the oven and pour the warm syrup on them when they are still hot. Wait them in this syrup and serve cold.
