Hazelnut Tapestry Textured Cookies


Hazelnut Tapestry Textured Cookies

Last year I received a beautiful rolling pin that had an engraved texture, which is what inspired this recipe.  To me, the cookies look like they are a delicate piece of Tudor tapestry. 


1/2 cup icing sugar

1 cup butter (softened)

2 cups flour

3/4 cup hazelnuts (finely ground)

1/2 bag of chocolate chips (for melting)

1 tablespoon of peanut oil or canola oil (when melting the chocolate - this makes the chocolate a little softer and easier to bite into)


With an electric mixer - cream the butter & icing sugar for a few minutes. Add in the flour and mix until blended. Now, with a wooden spoon - stir in the finely ground hazelnuts. Finally, with your hands gather all of the dough and form a ball - cover with wax paper and place in the fridge for a few hours. 


Remove from the fridge and divide the dough into two halves. Lightly flour a rolling surface and roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thick using a regular rolling pin (you will use the textured rolling pin next which will make them a little thinner than 1/4 inch).  


Next, flour the textured rolling pin and begin slowly rolling and pressing down at the same time (IMPORTANT - you can NOT roll back and forth - you can only roll one direction one time to keep an even pattern) (see picture below).  


Use a round cookie cutter and cut out cookies from the texture rolled dough.  Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes (or until desired golden color is achieved) (see picture below). 


Cool completely on a wire rack. Melt the chocolate & oil and then begin dipping 1 end of each cookie into the chocolate. Place on wax paper and don't remove until the chocolate has fully hardened.


 Serve & ENJOY!
