HAZELNUT COOKIES

I love working with nuts and when it comes to baking my favorite is hazelnuts because they are rich source of mono-and polyunsaturated fats and contains good amount of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acid. These cookies are best savoured at tea time and what better than a classic recipe of hazelnut cookies which are light on the palate and light on the stomach.

INGREDIENTS

  1. 210g all-purpose flour

  2. 80g ground hazelnut

  3. 200g unsalted butter, soft and diced

  4. 60g brown sugar or icing sugar

  5. 200g chocolate for dipping (optional)

PROCEDURE

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

  2. In a bowl, mix with your hand all the ingredients to form a smooth paste.

  3. Let it rest covered in a cool place (not the fridge) for 30 minutes to one hour.

  4. Butter two baking trays or lime them with baking paper.

  5. Roll down the dough on a lightly floured work surface and cut out cookies.

  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.

  7. Remove carefully from oven (they will be still soft) on to a cooling rack.

  8. Melt chocolate on double boiler and then dip the half the cookie in it.
