- Move the mixture to a bench or a mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and add sour cream and egg yolk. Mix gently until dough comes together. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces, shape into discs, wrap in cling film and set aside to rest for at least 30 minutes.
- In the meantime make the walnut filling, prepare and line cooking tray and preheat oven to 160C Fan Forced.

- Place one of the dough discs onto lightly floured bench and roll to 5mm thick. Cut into 8 triangles like you would with pizza. Place 1 tsp of walnut mixture onto wide end of each triangle, tuck the wide sides and roll towards the end point.
- Place mutekke cookies on a tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven, move to a cooling rack. Once cooled roll in icing sugar.
