Christmas comes and what better to prepare a typical sweet of these dates as Recipe Marron Glacé.
Despite being an easy recipe to make, you have to be very careful when preparing chestnuts, as these should not be broken, we should pay attention to the good presentation of our dishes because they must “get” first through the eyes of the diners .
Let our Recipe, Let’s go, Foodies !!!!

– Half Kg. chestnuts.
– 400 gr. of sugar.
– 1 vanilla pod or 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar.

We take a small cut in each of the chestnuts and then put them in hot water blanching about 10 minutes.
Then also we are taking away the peel, thin skin being careful not to break.
The we put in a saucepan with water and let cook until tender.

While the syrup prepared with the following ingredients;
– 1 liter of water.
– The 400 gr. of sugar
– The vanilla bean.
Mix everything in a saucepan and cook over medium heat 15 minutes.
After the minutes, we lower the heat to low and add the chestnuts, now being careful not to break the cook for about 10 minutes.
After this time, we turn off the heat and let stand chestnuts in this syrup for 24 hours.

The next day is the last step that we have the oven.
We covered baking tray and put chestnuts, one by one, carefully 😉 below the bake for 20 to 125 ° until well dried.
Let cool and ready to serve.

Do not want to be heavy and insist that what is important in this Recipe is the care that must be taken so that we do not break the chestnuts, therefore, according to the minutes graduation I gave I each taking into account that has a kitchen and oven, rather than leave them until the end of time I have given, it is preferable to go looking for doneness every so often, because chestnuts are broken very easily and although the taste does not change the presentation YUP.!!

Surely with the Recipe for sweet dumplings walnut we have prepared a few days ago, we had some leftover stuffing; Well here is a recipe to use it and prepare a deluxe breakfast, this is a Recipe for walnut pastry.
We need a sheet of puff pastry (of which are sold in supermarkets) and nut filling recipe sweet nut pies.

We’ll take the puff pastry sheet, we left at room temperature at least half an hour before working. We light the oven to maximum temperature.
Below we put the pastry on a baking paper and stretch a little roll, we take the long walnut stuffing and close the dough.
We introduce in the oven, carefully because it will do in about 15 minutes.
When well done take it out and sprinkle with icing sugar; and now this !!! Ready for breakfast.

I drew up a half hour before breakfast to serve warm with coffee, certainly will not overrun nothing 😉


This is a quick way to make the recipe, since we bought the estate. We can also prepare ourselves pastry; It is a rather long recipe but is not complicated, just prepare a dough, make a cross and then work it with a piece of butter placed in the center;It takes us longer because we must leave at least 2 hours in the refrigerator before praparar cake and this post does not compensate us so much work, so I’ve chosen to use a purchased mass.
