Cookies.Recipes's picture
Ingredients
  Sweet butter 1⁄2 Pound
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg yolk 1 Medium (From A Medium Egg)
  Hazelnuts 1⁄2 Pound, ground (Unblanched)
  Sifted all purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Meringue 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

Cream the butter with the sugar until light.
Blend in the egg yolk, then the hazelnuts.
Sift the flour with the salt.
Gradually add to the nut mixture; mix well.
Pat one third of the dough out onto a sheet of waxed paper which has been lightly dusted with flour.
Cover with a second sheet of waxed paper; then roll out to 1/4 inch thickness.
Peel off the top paper, then cut with a 2-inch round cutter.
Cut out the centers of the rounds, using a thimble.
Place the rings on a greased cookie sheet, spacing them 1 inch apart.
Using a pastry tube, or a small spatula and your finger as a guide, place a ribbon of the meringue around the rings, just in the center so that a rim of dough shows on either side.
Bake in a 325° oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges.
