It is time for another festive season. And although nearly every year I run away from the stressed out shoppers, the Christmas tunes and markets and escape to a beautiful beach in Goa where I can pretend Christmas never happens, I do enjoy a spot of festive baking.
My mum adores Christmas and can’t understand why I am not embracing it with the same enthusiasm. She decorates and wraps beautiful little parcels, plans family gatherings and she bakes and bakes because she is famous for making the best biscuits in the world.
Today I would like to share some of her favourite recipes with you, they make fantastic gifts or are just delicious to share with family and friends.
Thank you Mami x @annascholz #annaskitchen
Easy Christmas Biscuit Recipe : Nut Rounds #AnnasKitchen
100g Butter 75g Sugar 100g Flour
100g ground Hazelnuts
(They are kind of hard to find, you might have to grind them yourself in a food processor or get a Wholefood’s shop to do it for you). 1 egg yolk
1 bag of whole unshelled Hazelnuts
Whisk the butter and sugar until it looks creamy, then mix the our and ground hazel- nuts into the mixture.
Prepare a baking tray with a baking sheet so the cookies won’t stick.
Form little balls of cookie dough (I like mine about the size of a chestnut, they will spread once they are baked) press them on the bak- ing sheet and atten a little. Put one whole hazelnut in the centre.
Brush them with egg yolk and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes on 180 degrees
