Notes: These cookies bake up beautifully on their own, and can be served with tea or enjoyed with your favorite spreads. To make sandwich cookies, use a good quality hazelnut spread and dust with organic coco powder. Be sure to flatten cookies with a wet spoon before baking as these biscuits will rise into soft peaks if left alone. Remember that the dough for this recipe will need to chill for 2 hours before baking.
You will need:
3 large organic eggs
170 ml corn oil
385 g flour
200 g granulated sugar
15 g (3 tsp.) baking powder
5 ml (1 tsp.) best quality vanilla
1-500g container of Nutella or best quality hazelnut spread
Chopped hazelnuts and organic free trade cocoa powder for dusting
Blend together eggs, oil and sugar. To this mixture add in 250 g of flour and combine.
Continue mixing batter, and spoon in remaining flour.
When dough is formed add baking powder and vanilla and combine. Cover dough and chill for 2 hours.
Shape dough into balls and place on cookie sheet. Flatten with a spoon dipped in warm water to achieve uniform round shapes that are flat on top.
Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 175 degree oven.
When cookies are cooled completely, spread with Nutella and press together to form sandwiches.
