Hazelnut Cookies

Slice or cutout cookies are somehow tricky for me. They break into pieces so easily after baked, or, well, even when i line them on the baking sheet.

But I found this hazelnut dough very easy to handle. No mess, no fuss.

It just melt in your mouth and the fragrant of hazelnut really pops out.

As the recipe calls for no egg, the cookies can stay in the airtight container for longer time. The texture remains exactly the same as yesterday!
