Have A Crack At These Fancy Nut Wedges |

Fancy Nut Wedges

  • Author: Nina-Kristin Isensee


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar (divided)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups butter (divided)
  • 1 1/2 cups ground almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped hazelnuts*
  • 1 cup smooth apricot jam
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dark chocolate


  1. For the dough, mix the flour and half of the sugar in a bowl. Add eggs and half the butter and mix, then knead everything together. Form a ball and set aside in a cool place for about 30 minutes.
  2. For the topping, place the remaining butter and sugar in a small saucepan with a tablespoon of water and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat, and stir in the ground almonds and chopped hazelnuts. Set aside to cool.
  3. Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C. Roll the dough out into a thin rectangle the size of a baking sheet and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread with the apricot jam, and then distribute the nut mixture on top.
  4. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. While still warm, cut into triangles.
  6. When cooled completely, melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Dunk the corners of each wedge into the chocolate to coat. Cool on a wire rack or in the refrigerator so the chocolate coating solidifies before serving.
