Butter biscuits with chocolate and hazelnuts

Very simple biscuits made of the basic butter dough. I filled the hole with chocolate filling but you can also fill this one with jam, for example.

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 350g plain flour
  • 350g (cold) butter
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 vanilla sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 100ml whipped cream
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 50g chopped hazelnuts for decoration

Preparing:

  • In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar and vanilla sugar until foamy.
  • Add the cold butter cut into pieces, salt and flour and work into a smooth dough with your hands. Since you are working with cold butter, you don’t have to let the dough set, but you can work with it right away.
  • Take small pieces of the dough with your hands and form them into small balls about the size of a ping pong ball.
  • Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. One baking sheet will fit 5×4, so 20 pieces.
  • Then, press a small mound in the centre of each biscuit.
  • Bake the biscuits at 180C approx. 8 minutes until golden.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling. For this, heat the cream and remove it from the stove. Add the finely chopped chocolate and stir until it melts.
  • When the biscuits are baked, allow them to cool and then spoon 1 teaspoon of the filling into the centre of each biscuit.
  • Before the filling sets, sprinkle it with the finely chopped hazelnuts. Leave to set.
