Recipe - Dikino Oko / Cheery Kiss


250g ground nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts - use any mentioned or mixture of all)

250g powdered sugar

2 medium size eggs (vegan option = use vegan eggs)

2 packs of vanilla sugar (16 grams)

1 medium size lemon (use zest & juice)

1 jar of canned cherries


Before you start, take a tray approximately 22cm in diameter, so you can arrange your sweets as you are completing them.

Take a mixing bowl, any one you can find that can fit the above mentioned ingredients, think in terms of 0.5kg ingredients and room to spare for mixing.

In the mixing bowl, put ground nuts and add powder sugar, lemon juice, vanilla sugar, grated lemon zest and 2 eggs.

Add first, half of the lemon juice and slowly add more if needed to get the right consistency, should be soft but not runny so you can hold it firmly in your hand.
Pro tip: in case the mixture becomes much too soft you can add ground biscuit.

Mix all of the ingredients by hand or with a fork, do not use a mixer, it is preferable if you are mixing with hands, that your hands are cooled, wash your hands in cold water prior to mixing.

Once you have mixed all ingredients together and created a cohesive mixture, you can start prepping your cake.

Take about half a tablespoon of mixture and make a ball from it with your hands, then press with your finger to create indentation, place cherries in the indentation and that’s it!

When done with preparation, put the tray with the sweets into the fridge overnight, do not cover the tray or sweets, this is to help them get more firm texture.
