Hazelnut Cookies

Hazelnut Cookies
We make beautiful hazelnuts, buttery biscuits and enjoy them with coffee and a book. They are consumed in moderation because they become really addictive, we can comfortably eat a lot of them, a lot! They contain a little sugar but they are still made with plenty of butter. They are made mainly from hazelnut flour for all lovers of this delicious nut.
We spend some quality time with our children, making these wonderful cookies together.

Ingredients (~30 Buscuits)

  • 200g butter
  • 200g ground hazelnut
  • 150g self raising flour + a tbsp
  • 70g granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • whole hazelnuts on top
Remove the butter from the fridge 45′ before starting to make the cookies, so that it becomes really soft. In a large mixing bowl or food processor, combine the soft butter and sugar until it becomes a nice, fluffy & smooth mixture.
Add the grated hazelnuts together with the clove powder…
… and stir for a very short time.
Add the flour and mix to combine the ingredients.
Pour the mixture into a bowl and knead lightly with your hands. If the dough is too soft we may need to add a tablespoon of flour in small amounts.
Once the dough is evenly combined, use your hands to make small balls weighing 22 grams, slightly smaller than a walnut.
Place them in the large baking tray on a non-stick surface and press a whole hazelnut on top of them. We can make different shapes with the small cup pat forms.
Bake in a preheated oven with air, at 180℃ (356℉, Gas Mark:4.2) for ~20′. Once they start to brown around the perimeter, take them out of the oven and let them cool completely before moving them. They are enjoyed sprinkled with powdered sugar.
