Chocolate and hazelnut biscuits

By February 12, 2021 ,

I've been making these biscuits quite a lot recently. Mostly likely because they're tasty and easy to put together. In combination with the recent cold snap and being stuck in lockdown, quick and easy comfort food is needed. 

200g flour
5ml vanilla essence
120g butter
120g sugar
1 egg
70g hazelnuts
30g cocoa powder
50g chocolate chips (optional)

In a mixing bowl cream together the butter and the sugar
Add the egg and mix well
Fold in the flour, cocoa powder, nuts and chocolate chips and mix until you get a stiff dough
Roll into a sausage shape and place in the fridge to firm up for a minimum of 3 hours (you can also freeze the mix)
Slice the dough into 1cm thick disks
Place on a non stick baking sheet
Bake in the oven at 190C (fan) 200C (normal) for 12 minutes or until golden brown
If cooking from frozen cook for 16 minutes
The cookies will be a little soft when they come out of the oven, they will harden up as they cool
