  1. 300 g flour
  2. 80 g ground hazelnuts
  3. 100 g sugar
  4. a pinch of salt
  5. 200 g butter
  6. 2 egg yolks

For the ganache:

  1. 50 g dark chocolate
  2. 60 ml heavy cream

Mix together all the ingredients (flour, hazelnuts, sugar, butter, egg yolks and a pinch of salt) until it forms a homogeneous dough. Let it cool until firm, at least for an hour.

Put the chocolate in a bowl. Heat heavy cream until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and immediately pour it over the chocolate and mix until completely melted and glossy. Let the ganache cool.

Roll the dough into small balls ( approximately one tablespoon).

Using your thumb or the end of a wooden spoon, make an indentation in center of each ball.

Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes in a preheated oven, at 180 degrees C.

After the cookies cooled, fill each indentation with chocolate ganache. Optionally, the tops of the cookies can be decorated with caramelized hazelnuts.
