I seriously had to check which cookies I haven’t out up yet. Yes, after a while I start loose track of the recipe list. But alas, I have a handwritten list. *go me* So this time I’ll present you with some hazelnut cookies. Another one of those “but your arm strength in it, baby” recipes. Some kneading will be required of you.
I think if I bake some more I will end up with wrestler arms. 😀 I don’t recall this cookie being made during Christmas at my mom’s. Maybe she was hiding it from me or she made different shapes.
– 200g ground hazelnut
– 200g flour
– 200g butter
– 100g sugar
Combine all ingredients well, kneading it into a ball. From little sticks and roll them in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Bake at 180°C for about 8 to 10 min. Another option would be a cookie press for form your cookies. This is a dough that you can shape in any form you like.
Tip 1: As far as I know you don’t get ground hazelnut very well (at least not in the Canadian Prairies). You have to ground your own hazelnut in a food processor or you are lucky and someone from Germany sends you a package.
Tip 2: I accidentally used too much sugar, which will make you dough crumbly. Add more butter to make it softer. Or just avoid the whole thing by measuring right.
