Place on the tray and continue, spacing the balls evenly, till all the dough is used up.   Decorate with flaked almonds and flatten slightly with the back of a spoon

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

These very short biscuits are very pretty with the two types of chocolate. Serve them at Christmas time.

 

 

Makes 20 to 25:

 

  • 330g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 130g icing sugar
  • 200g softened butter
  • 1 tsp of coffe extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • Ganache:
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 100g  crème fraîche

 

Shortbread with two sorts of chocolate

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



    • Sieve the flour and cocoa powder together. 
    • In a bowl, work the sugar and butter with a wooden spoon to a thick cream.  Add the salt, coffee and egg.  Mix well, then add the flour/cocoa mixture.  Knead for a couple of minutes and form a ball.  
      Place the pastry dough between two sheets of baking parchment, flatten a little with your hand, then roll out using a rolling pin to a thickness of 3 mm.  Roll in both directions so that the dough is of an even thickness.  Slide everything onto a baking sheet and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.  The pastry should be left refrigerated long enough to harden so that the biscuits don’t stick.  
    • Preparation of the ganache:
      Grate the white chocolate into a bowl, add the crème fraîche, and melt over a bain-marie.  When the chocolate has melted, mix with a wooden spoon, then allow to cool to room temperature.  
    • Preheat the oven to 165°.
    • Remove the pastry from the fridge and carefully life off the upper sheet of baking parchment. Using a biscuit cutter diameter 6 cm , cut out the biscuits and place on to another baking tray covered with baking parchment.  Cut out a 3 cm hole from half of the biscuits with the end of a metal lid. 
    • Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
    • Once cooled, spread the whole biscuits with a teaspoon of white chocolate ganache, then place the biscuits with the hole on top.  
    • Allow to cool for at least an hour.

    • Beat the sugar and butter together in a bowl till smooth and light.

    • Pre-heat oven to 180°.
    • Take ½ the ball and place on a sheet of baking parchment, flatten slightly and cover with another sheet.  Roll the dough out evenly to 6 or 7mm thick.  Using the paper stops the dough adhering to the rolling-pin.

    • There is no need to glaze the biscuits.  Simply cook them in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes, taking care that they do not burn.  They will harden as they cool.

Hazelnuts Rosettes

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

A crisp petit four biscuit halfway between a meringue and a macaroon.

 

 

Pour 24 biscuits:

 

  • 80g de hazelnuts
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 65g egg white
  • 1 30*40 baking tray

 

Hazelnuts Rosettes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



    • Prepare the hazelnuts :  the flavour of these rosettes depends entirely on the quality of the hazelnuts.  First toast the nuts for 10mins at 150°.  As soon as the skin comes away, take them out of the oven and rub between your hands to remove the skins completely.  Sort to eliminate any which are bad (they have a rancid taste).
    • Process the nuts in a blender with 60gr icing-sugar and then sieve.
    • Whip egg whites, starting at a slow speed, incorporating little by little 40gr of icing-sugar. Beat for about 10 mins.  The whites should form stiff peaks.
    • Fold in the nut mixture with a spatula.  
    • Fill a piping-bag fitted with a 1cm fluted nozzle and pipe rosettes onto the baking-tray lined with baking parchment.  Keep the bag vertical to avoid making a peak on the top of the rosette.
    • Cook 10mins at150°, then at 110° for a further 15 mins.
    • Leave to cool on the tray.
