Hazelnut Butter Cookies


I believe most people would love a crispy, crunchy and light butter cookie like this one.  I just made these Hazelnut Butter Cookies last weekend using my Pandan Butter Cookies Recipe and they disappeared the next day.  You may also replace with other nuts like almonds or probably even peanuts.

This is low sugar cookies and I feel no guilty of eating a lot of them.

I have another Crispy Butter Cookies recipe that you may like to try.

HOW TO GET LIGHT, CRUMBLY AND CRISPY COOKIES:

BUTTER
When the recipe asks for room temperature butter, it refers to soft and pliable butter, but not looks shinny or greasy. It is still cool to touch and easy to spread.  During creaming stage of butter and sugar, it will create air pockets in the butter and will yield light cookies or bakes.  If the butter is warm, it will not create air pockets and make your cookies harder.

The best way to get room temperature butter is to cut the butter (from refrigerator) into chunks. Leave it outside room temperature (my tropical climate here is around 28 - 30 C) for 15 minutes or until you can get an indent when you press with your finger. 

Creaming Butter and Sugar process has to be done slowly at low medium speed and not more than medium speed or the butter will heat up.

FLOUR
Cake Flour has a lower protein content and make the cookies a bit softer.  All purposed flour make the cookies more crispy as it content more protein.
