It’s teatime!! Somewhere in the world it’s teatime for sure!
And who says tea also says yummy biscuits…
Today, let’s enjoy hazelnut, pralin and chocolate chip biscuits.
There are already a few similar recipes on the blog :
– The chocolate and hazelnuts biscuits (super yummy with a delicious dark chocolate ganache!!)
– the gingerbread cookies (that shouldn’t be eaten only during Chirstmas time!!)
So with those hazelnut, pralin and chocolate chip biscuits, what’s really new??
Of course you will have the shortbread biscuit as pastry batter, made here with hazelnut obviously, but also Argan oil that will bring a very delicate and subtle taste…
If you don’t have Argan oil, just take 5 g more of butter.
The pralin will make this biscuit quite crunchy and the chocolate chips, well… the chocolate chips make everything better!
You get it, you’re going to love those hazelnut, pralin and chocolate chip biscuits!!
There is just one constraint to this recipe: you will have to set the batter aside for 2 hours in your fridge. If the pastry isn’t cold enough, it will be difficult to spread, it will be sticky. In such case, do not hesitate to put it a few minutes in your freezer.
Another constraint: they disappear super quickly!!! That’s a major issue!! 😉 With a 4 cm round cutter, you will get approximately 25 biscuits.
And now what? The utensils:
Your food processor (or a large bowl with a rather rigid spatula),
A baking mat,
One or more cutters (this could be fun for the kids 🙂 )
And your rolling pin.
Shall we now?
