Nussecken Recipe

Nussecken can be translated as nutty corners but that sounds just weird – I prefer Nussecken. It’s kinda become a tradition to make these during Christmas in our family and I thought I could share the recipe with you guys. They are truly the best and they will change your life. True Story!

Ingredients for the Pastry:

  • 200mg flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 60g grounded almonds
  • 70g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 125g cold butter

Ingredients for Top:

  • 3 table spoons cream
  • 150g butter
  • 175g sugar
  • 3 table spoons honey
  • 300g grounded hazel nuts
  • Cream


  1. Knead ingredients for the pastry and keep it cool while you prepare the covering. Later you will roll it out on a baking sheet and cover the top with cream.
  2. For the covering, dissolve butter, sugar and honey. Add the hazel nuts and boil it up for a short while. Add cream to the mix and stir. Let the mixture cool off and then spread it onto the pastry.
  3. Baking time: 15 – 20 minutes at 200 – 220 C. Cut the pastry into triangles while still hot.
