Armenian wedding balls

This recipe for topik, as it is called in Turkish, is thanks to Zeliha ─░rez, who delighted us with them when we stayed at her gorgeous guesthouse in the hills east of Istanbul.  Turkish cuisine bears some influences from its neighbour Armenia.  These balls make a very elegant starter, and can be made and frozen in advance, which is a bonus.  I haven’t tried making them at home yet, so let me know how it goes if you try them…

Sounds good now, eh?  Try it at 5:30 in the morning.
