Method:
  1. Preheat the Oven at 180 degree Celsius (350 degree F) 
  2. Heat a pan and dry roast the hazelnuts for 2 minutes in medium flame. Remove the nuts from flame and allow it to cool off. Meanwhile, take the butter and icing sugar in a bowl and mix it well with a whisk until smooth

  3. Take the roasted hazelnuts in the mixer and give a pulse to break them into pieces. Do not powder it. We should have bits and pieces to have a nice crunch

  4. Add the hazelnut pieces to the bowl of sugar and butter and add vanilla essence and all purpose flour and mix well to make a dough

  5. Then with your cool hands, Take some dough and make small lemon sized balls. You can make 12 equal sized balls out of this dough. Place the rolled balls in the baking tray lined with foil. Put the tray in the oven and bake it for 12 minutes. I have a small tray and hence I did it in batches. Once we hear the beep or indication, carefully remove the baking tray by wearing your oven gloves

  6. Take a bowl with 1/4 cup of icing sugar. When the cookies are still hot, gently take them and dip it in the icing sugar to coat them evenly and then place it in wire rack to cool them. When the cookies are cooled off completely, again coat them in the icing sugar. 

  7. The delicious Hazelnut Tea Cookies (Tea Cakes) is now ready to serve with Tea / Coffee
