Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
165g ground hazelnuts, toasted
300g plain flour
pinch salt
80g caster sugar
250g butter
125g icing sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon hot water
hazelnuts or pistachios, chopped, to decorate

Method

  1. Put ground nuts into a bowl. Sift flour with salt and add to bowl with caster sugar. Rub in butter and combine well until smooth. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Roll out dough thinly and cut into rounds with a plain or fluted 4 cm cutter. Place rounds on greased baking trays and bake in a preheated moderate oven (180°C) for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 1 minute on trays, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Combine icing sugar with hot water to make a stiff icing and spread a little on top of each biscuit. Sprinkle over chopped nuts.

Note

  • If liked, half the biscuits may be left un-iced and pairs joined together with a little raspberry jam.
