Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line 2 large baking sheets with baking parchment. Toast the hazelnuts in a dry frying pan, then grind in a food processor or mini chopper until roughly ground. Mix together the flour, sugar and ground nuts. Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks, then fold into the dry ingredients with the vanilla.
  2. Drop tsps of the mixture, spaced apart, onto the lined baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 mins until just starting to colour. Let cool for 10 mins, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack. Store in a tin for up to 3 weeks.

Made these as accompaniment to a coffee mousse that I'm making for my husband for a Valentine's meal, I halved the recipe as I didn't need 30 and I got 12, so my dollops of mixture were obviously bigger! As they've just cooled I've tried one (as you do) and they are really yummy, quite sweet but crispy on the outside with a chewy bit in the middle. The recipe says they keep in a tin so I'm hoping they do as I've made these 2 days in advance.......that's if I haven't demolished the lot before then!!

These never made it anywhere near a gift hamper, as myself and my 3 year old became quite addicted. We made these together, very easy and quick, and they had just the crunchy, chewy texture I was hoping for. Delicious!
