Beigli - Hungarian walnut roll. 🇭🇺
This year I joined @julskitchen
's Cookie swap. It is a very kind thing, 71 people from all around the world (Canada, France, Hungary, Poland, United Kingdom and United States) bake a traditional local christmas cookie or pastry and send it to someone whom didn't know before. I baked a traditional hungarian walnut roll, a beigli with a little twist. This one is a walnut-figs beigli.
Beigli is the most popular Christmas pastry in Hungary. Traditionally it comes in two flavors, poppy seed or walnut. Most pastry shops and grocery stores also sell Beiglis in other delicious assortments, ranging from chestnut to plum filled versions. Beigli originates from Germany and in Hungary it became a custom to bake Beigli for Christmas in the 19th century during the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Most families in Hungary have their own Beigli recipe.
