1 batch of home made noodles*
2 tsp butter
1-1/2 cups walnuts, finely ground
1/4 cup powdered sugar

You will want powdered sugar or confectioner’s sugar for this type of dish. Icing sugar makes the nut mixture somewhat pasty, as it contains cornstarch, and regular sugar will cruch under your teeth. It's easy to make powdered sugar with a small coffee grinder, click on the link above. The alternative is to use what we call "fine sugar" or "extra fine sugar", but these are more expensive.

• Bring a 4-liter pot of salted water to a boil.
• Add the noodles and bring to boil.
• When the fresh noodles boil up they are ready.
• Pour the hot noodles though a large sieve and rinse under cold running water.
• Let the noodles drain completely.
• Melt the butter in the pot and return the drained noodles.
• Mix well to coat with butter. Cover and keep noodles warm.
• Transfer the warm buttered noodles to a large warmed serving bowl.
• Generously sprinkle noodles with the sweetened walnut mixture. Serves 4

* or use a 350 g package of fresh Linguine noodles.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. Happy cooking!
