My boys love cookies, not just eating them, but also making the dough and cutting the shapes.
For my eldest sons’ start in boarding school I have prepared a batch of these delicious treats to accompany a book that has a special meaning for me. My own father offered me the same book when I entered boarding school. I still remember this so many years later!
Recipe for the Hazelnut Shortcrust Cookies
- 100 g soft butter
- 110 g plain flour
- 40 g caster sugar
- 50 g ground hazelnuts
- Vanilla Extract
- Pinch of salt
Beat butter with sugar until light and frothy. The remaining ingredients are
added and worked into a smooth dough. Wrap the dough amd let it rest for one hour in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 170°C.
Roll out the dough, about 3-4 mm thick, on a lightly floured work surface
and cut into any shapes.
Place the butter biscuits on a prepared baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 10-13 min.
