These biscuits are quick and simple to prepare and store well in an airtight container.

1lb (450g) hazelnuts, finely ground

2 eggs

2 tablespoons honey

pinch Salt; few drops Vanilla essence

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.  Oil the paper well.

Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and blend into a paste with a wooden spoon.

Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for 1 hour.

Remove and roll the paste into small balls, about 3/4 inch (2cm) in diameter.  Place these on the prepared baking tray, spacing well.  Bake in a slow oven (325F, 170C, Mark 3) for about 15 minutes until golden brown.  They should still be slightly soft to touch.

Leave the biscuits to cool, before eating or storing.
