Method Prep:25min › Cook:12min › Extra time:1hr › Ready in:1hr37min
Mix flour, butter, icing sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon, hazelnuts and eggs until well combined.
Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Roll out the chilled mixture on a lightly floured surface to about 3mm thick. Cut out shapes of your choice and place on prepared tray. You need to work quickly as the mixture breaks easily when too warm. If that happens, return to the fridge till chilled.
Bake till lightly coloured, about 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool, then decorate with icing of your choice and sugar sprinkles if desired.
Ice the biscuits with this royal icing recipe or use your favourite.
