Arany Galushka (or Aranygaluska) is a traditional Hungarian dessert consisting of balls of yeast dough (galuska). The balls are rolled in melted butter, and then rolled in a mixture of sugar and crushed nuts (traditionally, walnuts), assembled into layers, before being baked till golden. Arany means gold or golden; galuska refers to the dumpling nature of the balls of dough. Aranygaluska may be served with vanilla custard.

Nancy Reagan popularized this dish in the United States when she served it at the White House for Christmas.[1]
