Nash Holos recipe: Cherry Walnut slice

Cherries and nuts of all kinds are common in Ukrainian pastries. This lovely slice will satisfy any sweet tooth! As a variation, you can also use blueberries, and/or add some grated lemon zest.

Judy shared this yummy recipe on Nash Holos Sunday, August 16. For her Cherry & Walnut Slice you will need:

1 ½ cup flour
½ cup white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup butter
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 egg white
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh cherries

Sift flour, add sugar and baking powder and blend. Rub in butter, mix in unbeaten egg, and egg yolk. Spread in buttered eight-inch square pan.

Beat egg white until stiff; add brown sugar, walnuts and cherries. Spread over base layer. Bake at 350 ยบ for 45 minutes.

Smachnoho!
