  • 2.5 cups shredded walnuts
  • 1 cup honey


Toast the walnuts lightly at 350F for 10-15 minutes

Chop walnuts by hand in small pieces, do not throw them in food processor because walnuts need to have a bite and the food processor will cut them too small. Lay a sheet of parchment paper and put the walnuts on top.

Put honey in a pan and simmer over low/medium heat. Once it starts to bubble put the walnut inside and stir quickly. Pour the mixture of honey and walnuts on parchment paper or a kitchen board that has been moistened with cold water.

Wet a rolling pin and roll out the thickness to approximately half an inch. This has to be done quickly so the honey mixture doesn’t harden.

let it cook for 15-20 minuts. Slice it into any shape desired. Georgians slice it into diamond shape or squares.

Let it harden for another hour and enjoy!


This is a Georgian dessert served at special occasions, usually New Years.
