I spent about four and a half hours today puttering around in the kitchen, baking, cleaning, cooking, eating, and carefully stacking my cookies into tins. My back hurts, I’m beat… and I couldn’t be happier.

Man. I rocked them cookies.

SCHOKOLIS

Beat butter until creamy. Add vanilla sugar and confectioner’s sugar, then the mix of starch, flour and cocoa. Stir first, then switch to kneading. Form rolls with a 2 cm diameter, then cut into 1 cm slices. Add one hazelnut to every slice and form a ball with the nut in the middle. Lay out on a cookie sheet and bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes. Let the cookies cool off in a strainer or on a rack, then dip into chocolate.

Mix all a) ingredients together and knead quickly into a firm dough. Wrap in cling foil and let the dough rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Roll dough into cylinders as thick as a pencil, cut into 5 cm/ 2 inch pieces and form into crescents. Bake for 10 minutes until golden.

Mix vanilla sugar and confectioner’s sugar. Dip the crescents into the sugar mixture while they’re still hot, then let them cool on a rack.
