Last nite was a busy night after iftar. Started preparing the ingredients I needed to make some yummilicious little hazelnut rossettes. This is a recipe I fell in love at first sight, because : it is served in cute little patty cases and, it has chocolate chip toppings!
1/3 cup castor sugar
60g ground hazelnuts
1 2/3 cups plain flour
1 small pkt chocolate chips
How you do it:
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
Add ground hazelnuts, beat until combined.
Add sifted flour. Mix well.
Put mixture into piping bag fitted with fluted tube.
Pipe small stars into small paper patty cases.
(I choose to skip this and just put teaspoonfuls in the patty cases.)
Top each biscuit with a chocolate chip.
Bake in moderate oven approx. 15 mins or until biscuits are light brown.
Makes about 60 small rossettes.
These yummies should taste slightly crispy, cruncy with the hazelnuts, buttery rich and you can taste the choc chip melt in your mouth. Perhaps those who do not like chocolate can substitute the choc chip topping for perhaps chopped hazelnuts.
