This recipe for hazelnut biscuits la
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C / Gas 6. Line a large baking sheet with baking parchment.
2. Toast the hazelnuts in the oven for 5 minutes until golden. Cool the nuts completely, then put them in a food processor with the icing sugar and whiz until coarsely chopped. Now add the flour, salt and butter and whiz until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Top marks.
3. Add the egg yolk and blitz until the mixture just comes together. Tip it onto a board and bring together with your hands. Wrap the dough in baking parchment and chill for 15 minutes until firm.
4. Unwrap the dough and leave it sitting on the baking parchment. Dust your rolling pin and the surface of the dough with flour, and roll it out (on the parchment) to a 5mm thickness. Cut out 24 rounds using a 4cm (1 1/2in) round cutter, re-rolling when necessary. Price each round all over, then transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8.10 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
5. Please beat the mascarpone and icing sugar together in a bowl. If the mixture looks too soft to pipe, chill it for half an hour so it firms up. Spoon it into a piping bag, fitted with a 1cm (1/2) star nozzle, and pipe a swirl onto all the pastry rounds. Put two halves together, and top each tart with a strawberry.
