Diós kosárka – Walnut filled shortcrust pastry cupcakes

by | Jan 20, 2017 | Breads, buns & biscuits

Diós kosárka is a sort of cupcake made up of shortcrust pastry and walnut filling. These cupcakes used to be baked for weddings because they could be prepared 2-3 days earlier and stay fresh long. In many families diós kosárka is still served at special events.

The cupcakes are baked in special scalloped pans, but a muffin tin can also serve the purpose. Pans must be buttered thoroughly so that the cupcakes can be removed easily. Let the cupcakes cool before getting them out of the pan.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
