These cookies are a must to try.
They are so good that you cannot imagine.
Have a bite…
- 200 g butter at room temp.
- 100 g icing sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 pinch of salt
- 200 g flour
- 150 g ground almonds or/and ground hazelnuts
- 200 g chocolate coating
I used a mix of almonds and hazelnuts
Beat the butter with the icing sugar, add the egg yolks and salt
at the end add the flour and grounded nuts.
Wrap the dough in a plastic film and refrigerate1 hour, or over night.
Roll the dough in 4-5 mm thick sheet, cut cookies with a 8-9 cm round cutter.
Align on a baking sheet on the baking paper and bake for 6-7 minutes at 175°C
Do not let them get too brown. Here are with a mix: half almonds-half hazelnuts.
I used all the combinations, they are always good. And here with almonds:
Allow to cool on the rack and then coat with chocolate half of cookies and allow the chocolate to set.
- 150 g butter at room temp.
- 60 g dark chocolate
- 50 g icing sugar
- rum flavor
Beat the butter with sugar then add the tempered chocolate and rum.
Assemble the cookies:
On the other half of the cookies spoon/pipe the cream (or jam)
and make a sandwich with a chocolate coated half cookie.
