    Source of Recipe

    List of Ingredients

    1 pound unsalted butter
    2 cups sugar
    1 pound ground walnuts
    2 egg yolks
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    5 cups flour
    1/3 cup sour cream
    2 pounds grated apples
    Grated peel of 1 lemon
    1 whole egg
    1/2 cup bread crumbs
    1 teaspoon cinnamon


    Sift the flour and salt and add softened butter, then add one cup of sugar, 2 egg yolks, 1 whole egg, cream, vanilla and lemon peel. The dough will be rich. Then divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Roll out 1/2 of the dough over the bottom of a large pan. On top of this spread apples evenly. Take the remaining sugar and sprinkle on top. Also sprinkle bread crumbs, cinnamon and walnuts. If the apples are too sweet, add a little lemon juice. Roll out the other half of the dough and place it over the mixture, neatly tucking in the sides. Over the top spread some sour cream and sprinkle with walnuts. Before baking, cut into small squares. Bake in an oven at 320 degrees for 1 hour.
    Servings: 24
