i love cookies.
When I was younger I dreamt of owning my own cookie shop.
It was a magical shop.
If that shop existed, this would be the house specialty.
A hint of Chocolate.
Its all a cookie should be.
200g soft butter
120 roasted hazelnut grounded to a fine powder
1 egg yolk
50g melted dark chocolate
using the paddle attachment on you mixer, mix the butter and sugar until the mixture gets whiter and fluffier. Add the yolk. Beat for one more minute.
Add the hazelnut powder and the flour. Mix only until incorporated.
Roll the dough into logs. Freeze.
Cut into 0.5 cm circles, and roll into a cherry size ball.
Bake at 170c . 15 min.
(needless to say that you looking for a nice golden color and a deep hazelnut fragrance surrounding your kitchen)
When the cookies cool down, dip one side into the melted chocolate and cover with another cookie.
