Grilijash wafers

First, let me explain what it is and how to make grilijash.
Grilijash is melted sugar on low heat to become light brown and added chopped walnuts. Stir quick to wrap nuts and remove from stove. Pour onto the oiled and a little warmed plate. When it is cooled, grind it on grinder nuts. That is grilijash.

For this wafers you need:
    4      whole eggs
500 g   sugar
250 g   butter
200 g   chopped walnuts (optionally if you like)
200 g   walnuts for grilijash
    1 higher packing wafer

Preparation:
Whisk 4 eggs with 300 g sugar and cook on the steam. When it is thickly to see the trace on bottom of bowl (where you cook it), remove it from stove.
Separately whisk foamy the butter. Add the foamy butter and grilijas in a little cooled cream. Add chopped walnuts if you like.
Fill the wafers with this mass. Optionally can overflow with the chocolate glaze
Grilijash prepare on this way:
Melt 200g sugar on a low heat to become a light brown. Add in sugar preparation on that way 200g walnuts and pour the mass onto the oiled and a little warm plate. When it is cooled, grind it on grinder nuts.

Grilijas oblande


Prvo da objasnim sta je grilijas i kako se pravi.
Grilijas je rastopljeni secer na slaboj vatri do svetlo braon boje u koji su dodati seckani orasi. Masu brzo promesati tako da se orasi lepo umotaju u rastopljeni secer pa izruciti na nauljen i malo zagrejan tanjir. Kad se masa ohladi samleti na masini za orahe. To je grilijas.

Za ove oblande potrebno je
    4      cela jajeta
500 g   secera
250 g   maslaca
200 g   seckanih oraha (ako volite)
200 g   oraha za grilijas
    1 vece pakovanje oblandi

Priprema:
Umutiti 4 jajeta sa 300 g secera i kuvati na pari. Kada je dovoljno gusto da ostaje trag na posudi u kojoj se kuva, skloniti sa sporeta.
Posebno penasto umutiti maslac pa ga dodati u malo prohladjen krem. Izjednaciti masu pa dodati samljeven grilijas. Dodati i seckane orahe ako volite.
Filovati oblande ovom masom. Po zelji moze se staviti glazura od cokolade.
Grilijas pripremiti na sledeci nacin:
Otopiti 200g secera na tihoj vatri do svetlo braon boje. Dodati u rastopljeni secer 200g oraha da se lepo obaviju secerom pa masu izruciti na nauljen i malo zagrejan tanjir. Kad se masa ohladi samleti je na masini za orahe.

Napomena: Ove oblande su vrlo ukusne i bez seckanih oraha ali ako volite ukus seckanih oraha u kolacima dodajte ih.
