Hazelnut cookies

I was dying to try out these hazelnut cookies after Dolly posted them up, but they didn’t turn out too well for me 😦  Either my brown sugar was too coarse, or the ground hazelnut just didn’t appeal to me; I don’t know. This is my 2nd domestic failure in a week and it’s starting to get to me 😦

The ugly specks are brown sugar and my cookies look nothing like Dolly’s 😦 I’m gonna have to try them out again someday, I have to! Meanwhile, I still have a list of to-bake waiting impatiently. Time to pull up my socks!

Hazelnut Cookie adapted from Linda

210g flour
90g ground hazelnut
125g butter, softened
115g brown sugar
1 egg
salt for sprinkling (optional)

Preheat oven to 170degreeC/350degreeF.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Meanwhile, combine the flour and hazelnut in a bowl. Add the egg into the butter-sugar mixture until thoroughly mixed. Then pour in the flour and hazelnut in two portions. Stop when combined and chill the cookie dough for an hour.

Roll them into a thin layer (I like to do them in between two parchment papers) and chill until firm, around an hour. Use a cookie to cut out the shape you want and place on baking sheets. Sprinkle with salt then bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.

    Yea, mine looks so polka-dotted LOL! It’s the brown sugar I think mine had a lot of those black stuff in it, I think it’s molasses or what!
