Scrumptious crumbles

Recipe #4: walnut bars

Agata and Marina have been going on and on about this supposedly irresistible raisin-walnut liaison for months… They were right.


“For dessert, maybe we can split a couple of crumbs.” (Nicholas Sparks)


500 gr (4 cups) all-purpose flour

400 gr (2 cups) granulated sugar

200 gr butter (room temperature)

6 egg yolks

100 gr raisins

40 walnuts

½ glass of milk

1 tbsp baking powder


This couldn’t be easier!

Preheat the oven to 160° (320 F). Grease and dust an 11″ pan.

Now simply combine all of the above ingredients to obtain a rather firm dough. Place the dough in the center of the pan and spread it out.  Place it in the oven and bake for about an hour, it should be well cooked but it mustn’t harden too much.

Let it cool and then cut into bars. Any size works, just remember to sprinkle them with the remaining crumbs!
