Get Baking with Your Kids
Baking at home is always so much fun, especially when you’re sharing it with your children. It’s a great time to get messy, get creative and have fun.
Here’s a recipe we think is perfect for getting your kids involved!
Chocolate and Hazelnut Thumbprint Cookies
- 180g toasted hazelnuts
- 100g plain flour
- 90g buckwheat flour
- 60g golden caster sugar
- 180g butter
- 100g dark chocolate, chopped
- 1tsp coconut oil
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Blitz your hazelnuts into a food processor until finally chopped.
- Now mix together with the sieved flours and the sugar, then rub in the butter with your hands.
- Tip out onto a work surface and knead by hand until nice and smooth.
- Roll the dough into 25 small balls, and place onto your baking tray.
- Using your thumb, make an indent in the middle of each ball of dough, like a thumbprint.
- Put in the fridge and chill for 30 minutes, once cool bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden.
- Put the chocolate and oil in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir until fully melted.
- Now you can spoon a little of the chocolate into the thumb print whole of each cookie.
- Set aside until the chocolate has melted, then enjoy!
