Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Blend flour, brown sugar, cornstarch, 1 tablespoon espresso powder and salt in a food processor. Add butter and vanilla. Using the pulse cycle-or pressing on/off button on your food processor, process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add nuts; blend until finely chopped. Transfer dough to floured work surface. Knead just until dough comes together.
  3. Divide dough in half. Press each half into 9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until deep golden brown, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool for 2 minutes then remove sides of pan. Cut each shortbread round into 24 wedges. Cool completely.
  5. Mix 2 tablespoons hot water and remaining 1 teaspoon espresso powder in small saucepan. Add chocolate. Stir over medium-low heat until chocolate is smooth. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Drizzle chocolate mixture over cookies. Let stand until chocolate sets.

Substituted the espresso with Ghirardelli chocolate hazelnut cocoa powder.

Unusual and delicious Italian pastry. Freezer friendly. One of my favorites.

While I love chocolate and hazelnuts, I found this cookie to have a certain unpleasant bitterness. It was too dense and not chocolatey enough for my American tastes.
