      Title: Masa z Liskovykh Orikhiv (Filbert Filling)
 Categories: Desserts, Christmas, Russian
   Servings: 10
  
       6 oz Filberts Or Walnuts
     1/2 c  Sugar
       1 ts Vanilla Extract
       3 ts Sour Cream
            Seedless Berry Or Grape Jam
  
   Roast the nuts in a heavy skillet, rub lightly to remove some of the skin,
   and grate fine in a processor or a nut grinder.  Mix in the sugar,
   vanilla, and enough sour cream (you might need up to 4 ts) to bind.  Split
   the cake into two layers and spread one cut surface with jam then the nut
   filling.  Cover the filling with the other layer and press lightly.  Wrap
   in foil and refrigerate overnight.  Glaze with chocolate icing or cover
   lightly with the same type of jam used inside and sprinkle with chocolate
   shavings.
   
   NOTE:
   
   This filling is especially good with Medianyk (Honey Cake).
