Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the butter, hazelnuts, vanilla extract and 85g of the icing sugar in a food processor and whizz to a paste. Add 1 tsp of the ground cloves and the flour, and pulse together until a dough forms.

  • STEP 2

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line a couple of baking sheets with baking parchment. Roll the dough into walnut- sized balls and arrange on the baking sheets. Use the back of a fork to lightly squash each ball, then bake for 12-15 mins until they turn a pale biscuit colour – if they get too brown, they will become dry.

  • STEP 3

    Mix the remaining icing sugar and ground cloves, then sieve thickly over the hot biscuits. Leave to cool slightly before eating just warm, or cool.
