Hazelnut Snow Cookie

I bought a packet of grounded hazelnut and made this cookie using butter and brown sugar. The result was a not too sweet cookie which I believe my dad would love to eat. I sprinkled some snow powder thinking that I could make the cookie sweeter but it doesn't seem to work that way. Snow powder has only a hint of sweetness and it is not like icing sugar which is very sweet.


250 gm unsalted butter
100 gm brown sugar
400 gm Top flour
80 gm ground hazelnut
2 eggs
red chelory for topping


Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.

Add in egg and blend well.

Stir in the grounded hazelnut and flour and mix till a dough is formed.

Put the soft dough in a piping bag and pipe the cookies out.

Egg wash the cookie top and place a chelory for decoration.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C for 20 mins. or till cookie turns a light golden colour.

When cookie is done and is still warm, sprinkle some snow powder on it.

Cool cookie completely before storing in an air-tight container.
