Bake these fine hazelnut cookies for Christmas. The Germans use lots of ground nuts in their Christmas baking and Haselnussplaetzchen are a joy to bake and eat.
1/4 pound flour
1/4 pound hazelnuts, lightly toasted and ground
1/4 pound sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
1/4 pound butter, flaked
Note: 1 pound = 454 g
Sift the flour onto a board and add the hazelnuts, sugar, vanilla sugar and flaked butter. Quickly knead all the ingredients to a make a dough. Shape the dough into a roll of approx. 1 1/2 inch dia. and put into a cool place.
Cut 1 inch rounds from the roll and arrange them on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. Refrigerate once more. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for about 10 minutes.
Cover the cookies with chocolate glaze while they are still hot and decorate each cookie with a hazelnut. Leave the cookies to cool at room temperature.
