These are really simple to make and can be served with coffee or ice cream. Use a good, all-butter pastry for better results.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets.
  2. Put the walnuts, chocolate and orange zest in a food processor and chop fairly finely.
  3. Beat the egg and milk together to prepare egg wash.
  4. Roll out the pastry to about 3mm thickness, then slice into strips roughly 4cm by 12cm.
  5. Brush each strip with the egg wash, then scatter with a layer of the chopped walnut mixture. Press it lightly into the pastry. Form each strip into a twist.
  6. Transfer to the baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden and puffed up, then remove from the oven and, while still hot, dust generously with sifted icing sugar.
  8. Leave to cool before serving.
