Ingredients for the Dough:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup of ground hazelnuts
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • A dash of vanilla extract


  • 7 ounces of milk chocolate coating


  1. Mix flour, powdered sugar, softened butter, ground hazelnuts, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl until a sticky dough forms.
  2. Transfer the dough into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle (ensure the bag is sturdy to handle the dough).
  3. Pipe the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, forming circles or “S” shapes.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 374°F (conventional setting) for 10 minutes or until the cookies are light golden on top and golden brown underneath, adjusting time as necessary for your oven.
  5. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, being careful to prevent water from mixing with the chocolate.
  6. Once the cookies have cooled completely, dip them into the melted chocolate, gently scraping the excess off on the edge of your container, and allow to set.
