To Finish


Instructions

  1. In a bowl, add the ground hazelnuts, sugar and butter, with a hand mixer beat until the butter is creamed and fluffy.
  2. Beat in the flour to the mixture until mixed in. Then using your hands, bring the dough together to a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill in the fridge for an hour.
  3. Heat the oven to 180C and line baking trays with parchment.
  4. Using a teaspoon amount of the dough, roll into balls and set on the tray 2cm apart for spreading. Continue with all the dough. Bake for 10 mins until golden, may need a couple of extra minutes if yours are a little larger. Cool completely.
  5. Using a Bain Marie, gently melt the chocolate. Spread a small amount of chocolate on half the cooled biscuit bases, with the chocolate upright. Leave for 10 minutes for the chocolate to set a bit before sandwiching with the remaining biscuits.
  6. Leave the biscuits to set completely before serving with a strong coffee.
