Brown sugar hazelnut biscuits

Delicious served with fresh coffee!

Ingredients

225g butter
175g WHITWORTHS GOLDEN GRANULATED SUGAR
175g WHITWORTHS LIGHT SOFT BROWN SUGAR
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
325g plain flour
200g ground hazelnuts
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt

Preparation method

Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/ Gas Mark 5.

Beat the butter, WHITWORTHS GOLDEN GRANULATED SUGAR, WHITWORTHS LIGHT SOFT BROWN SUGAR and vanilla for 2-3 minutes until light and creamy.

Add the eggs and continue to beat for 2 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients and beat until combined. Chill the dough in the fridge for an hour.

Split the dough in two and roll each half into a sausage, approximately 3-4cm in diameter. Wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hour, or until ready to use. Up to 48 hours

When you are ready to bake the cookies, unwrap each sausage and cut into slices 1 ½ – 2cm thick and lay on a baking tray, widely spaced apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Top tips

The cookies are large, so why not cut the slices of dough in half before baking? They are easier to dunk in your cup of tea too!!
