Hazelnut Sandies

Chinese New Year is getting near! I think I'm more excited than my children. haha..... Here's another simple and yet easy to make recipe. I do like this cookie! It tastes a little crunchy and pretty light as well.

Ingredients :
*
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup ground hazelnut
1 tspn salt
1/2 tspn baking powder
160gm butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tspn vanilla extract
*
Method :
*
- combine flour, hazelnut, salt & baking powder together and mix well.
- cream butter and sugar untill creamy & smooth.
- stir in vanilla extract and beat well.
- slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix till just combined.
- then roll dough between 2 plastic sheets to 1/2cm thickness.



- by using a ruler, simply cut dough into equal square shape.
- then place them to baking tray and bake at 170'c for 10-15 mins.

For those are interested, you may try this recipe with other ground nuts. For instance, pecan or almond! I'm sure they both taste wonderful as well.

We've been making sandies for years, but use pecans and ours are round, sprinkled with confectioners sugar. I love 'em!

Sowmya : Thank you very much. You're so kind!

VSSpringfields : SO.. Happy Chinese New Year to you too! hahaha...

Claire : Hey, no worries! I'm sure Elin will send over some delicious NY cookies soon. hahaha... "Elin, you better do so!".

Alwayswinner : Are you? Hopefully, I'll be able to catch more lovely photos during this coming festive season.

3HTummies : Good on you! Just lift up some festive mood around the house, right?

Penny : Hahaha... If we're neighbours, probably I'll stop cooking and just join you for every meal. Safe me alot of cooking time! haha...

Angie : Thank you, Daaaarling!

Drick : I could see that! Cause mostly sandies recipe that I found are made of pecans. I wonder why?

Barbara : I just cut off the sugar on top! I think the sandies are quite sweet by itself. Well, it's help to reduce our sugar intake as well.

Lululu : Thank you very much for such a nice comment! That's very kind of you. Btw, Happy Chinese New Year to you & your family too. And also Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope you all have a fabulous time!

Cheers, Kristy
