Typical Asturian dessert, it is a kind of fried empanadilla, with a filling of chopped nuts, anise and sugar, although sometimes hazelnuts are added.

They can also be cooked in the oven, in this case, puff pastry is used instead of the traditional dough.

This is the most traditional recipe, with a lot of filling anda very thin dough, as I like it ?.

Ingredients for the dough

500 gr of flour

Two teaspoons of chemical yeast

1 yolk

1 pinch of salt

150 ml white wine

150 ml of soft olive oil

Ingredients for the filling

250 gr of peeled and finely chopped walnuts

A splash of milk

150 gr of sugar

4 spoons of anise


Prepare the dough first. Mix in a bowl the wine, the yolk, the oil and the pinch of salt, integrate well and then add the flour along with the yeast. Mix well with your hands or the food processor until all the ingredients are integrated and you have a ball of dough that does not stick to your hands. Wrap the ball of dough in transparent paper and let it rest. Meanwhile, prepare the filling?

Personally I like nuts very finely chopped, so crush them with a food processor. Mix the nuts in a bowl with the sugar, milk, and anise and mix well.

We now start to assemble the casadiellas and then fry them.

Spread the dough with the help of a rolling pin on the floured work table, try to make it as thin as possible.

Then cut the dough into equal rectangular portions, approximately 12 x 10 cm.

Then place along each portion the filling of nuts, about a teaspoon and a half; close the casadiella on itself and seal the edges with a fork.

Fry the portions in a deep pan with plenty of hot oil (so that casadielles float) on both sides until golden brown. Place the casadielles in a dish with kitchen paper so that it absorbs the remaining oil and then coat the casadiellas with sugar.

I encourage you to prepare this easy and delicious dessert of my land.

Apple pie

My mother recently found this recipe that a friend had written for me a few years ago. So nice to see her recipe again! at the time I thought it would be a good Christmas recipe, here goes just as she taught  me:


For the dough:

250 gr of flour

150 gr of butter

125 gr of sugar

1 beaten egg

lemon zest

pinch of salt

For the filling:

500 gr of reinetas apples

50 gr of sugar

1 envelope of custard

ground cinnamon



In a bowl put the flour, the butter, sugar, salt, grated lemon and half of the egg together. With two knives cut the butter into small pieces, then knead with your fingers until you get a good dough.

Grease the mold (20 cm) and line it with 2/3 of the dough, put it in the fridge for 30 minutes, like the rest of the dough.

Peel and cut the apples into thin slices, sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon, the envelope of custard and mix everything well, also add the raisins.

Pour the filling into the mold and distribute well until it covers the entire surface, with the rest of the dough make the decoration. You can make strips in the form of grid, like the classic apple pie, in this case, to give a more festive touch I have chosen to shape the dough with cookie cutters and place it beautifully on top.

To finish, paint with the leftover egg. Take to the oven at 180ºC for about 45 minutes. Served with vanilla ice cream takes it to another level.

Bon Appetite!

Happy Holidays!
