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.
