3/4 cup butter, soft
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup hazelnuts, toasted and ground
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
1/4 cup white coarse sugar crystals (decorating sugar)
Beat butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy with spoon. Stir in vanilla and egg yolk. Stir in flour and ground hazelnuts until well blended. Cover tightly and chill 1 hour.
