Quick Hazelnut Cookies


Another brisk, invigorating walk yesterday. A stunning panorama from the viewpoint at Fort Saint André. Thanks goodness I had some of these in my pocket when we got to the top. Deliciously crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.



They are so easy to make and a welcome treat ,mid-walk.I polished some off this morning too, dipped in strong black coffee.

75g self-raising flour

75g of ground hazelnuts or  grated “pain de noisette”

75g  caster sugar

150g butter

Preheat the oven to 180°c

Place the flour, sugar and nuts in a large bowl.

Rub-in the butter until the mixture looks like crumbs.

Use your hands to squash the crumbs into a rough dough.

Take pieces of the dough and roll into balls, the size of large walnuts.

Place on a greased baking tray and squash down with a fork.

Bake for 10 minutes. Do not wait until they are golden as they tend to burn underneath by this time.

Leave on the baking tray for a minute and then transfer to a cooling tray.

Also, if you wish to decorate with whole hazelnuts, pop them on mid-way through cooking, or they will become little black balls!(as I discovered yesterday)

Variations: replace the hazelnuts with walnuts or pecans.
