Recipe: Sape

I grew up on a very simple repertoire of recipes.  My mum had a menu Monday to Sunday, so each night you knew exactly what you were eating.  But she made fabulous desserts.  I'm sharing a very simple recipe for biscuits, called "sape" (pronounced "sha-peh").

100g sugar
100g hazelnuts or walnuts
170g flour
200g butter
2 whole eggs

Throw all the ingredients together and mix

Grease a tray

Spoon dough into moulds

Depending on your oven bake for 10-20 minutes at 180C

Monty says hello :)

Sprinkle with icing sugar and voila!  Wonderful with tea, coffee or hot chocolate


  1. ooo nice Nigella tins!

    I never knew what my mum was going to cook, and when I would ask her she would pretend she didn't know either. I've started doing this to my boy :P

    awwww Monty <3

  4. haha I love that sape are always baked in the shell moulds. For as long as my family has been eating them, they've always been shell shaped.

  5. Those look awesome!


  6. haha good point MrsAriGold - sape means paws, so I guess it's more of a paw than a shell? I can't find the proper moulds anywhere so I use the madeleine tray
