1/2cupfinely chopped hazelnuts (or walnuts, pecans or almonds)(60 grams)
1/2cupbutter (room temperature)*(110 grams)
*If you use unsalted butter then add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
1/4-1/2cuppowdered sugar / icing sugar for rolling
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and hazelnuts, add butter and vanilla. Start to bring together with a fork, then move to a lightly floured flat surface and gently knead to form a dough. Wrap in parchment or plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours.
Roll dough into small balls (a little smaller than golf ball size), place on cookie sheets. And refrigerate while oven is pre-heating.
Pre-heat oven to 350° (180C). Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. Let sit about 1-2 minutes (while the cookies are still quite warm) then roll in sifted icing sugar. Let cool and then roll again in the icing sugar. Serve and Enjoy!
This can also be done in a stand up mixer or food processor.
