DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix and sieve together the flour and baking powder onto a pastry board or cool slab.
  • Make a well in the centre and pour in the sugar, vanilla sugar, flavourings and milk.
  • Draw in some of the flour from the sides of the well to combine with these to form a thickish paste.
  • Add the cold butter or margarine, cut into small pieces and the ground hazelnuts.
  • Cover everything with more of the flour and, starting from the middle, work all the ingredients quickly with your hands into a smooth firm paste.
  • If the dough is sticky, refrigerate until no longer sticky.
  • Roll out the pastry, in small quantities, to 1/8 inch thickness and cut out into circles, squares, hearts, etc.
  • Lay cut out cookies on an ungreased baking sheet, brush with milk and decorate each with half a hazelnut.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
