Easy to make and even easier to enjoy, these shortbread cookies are bursting with hazelnuts. Keep some rolls in your fridge and you’ll be ready to make freshly baked cookies in no time.


1 cup 250 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup 125 mL corn starch
1/2 cup 125 mL icing sugar
3/4 cup 175 mL finely chopped hazelnuts
3/4 cup 175 mL butter, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Combine flour, corn starch, icing sugar and nuts in a large bowl.
  3. Blend, with large spoon, in butter. Work with hands until soft, smooth dough forms.
  4. Shape dough into a smooth roll about 1 1/2" (4 cm) in diameter.
  5. Wrap and chill until firm (about 4 hours or overnight). Store rolls in refrigerator for up to 1 month.
  6. Cut with sharp knife into thin slices. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
  8. Remove from sheet and cool on wire racks.
