The first bunch

Yesterday afternoon it was snowing all the time, and it still has not stopped today morning! So we are almost sinking in snow. It is absolutely beautiful! So yesterday afternoon I felt like preparing the first bunch of cookies for Christmas. In the recipe said to use hazelnut, but I changed it to pecans and it did not work out, I guess it was too fat that way, and I should have reduced the butter. Anyway later on I decided to give it another go with hazelnut.

150 g flour
1 pinch of baking soda
150 g sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar

150 g butter
150 g grated hazelnut
5 tablespoon apricot jam

100 g chocolate

Mix flour with baking soda, add sugar, vanilla sugar, hazelnut and butter and knead a dough.
Put it in the fridge for about an hour, after roll out and with a help of a cookie cutter cut it in the form you want to. Bake for about 10 minutes on 180°C. Melt chocolate and cover half of the cookies with it. Smear jam on the other half and put the halves together.
