Nutty little men, stars and snowmen

These hazelnut Christmas cookies were gone in a blink! They are so simple to make and are delicious.

300g all-purpose flour
200g ground hazelnuts
200g butter
150g sugar
1pckg vanilla sugar 
or 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg or egg substitute 
1 pinch salt

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. I used cold butter and the dough was still hard enough to be rolled and cut out. If your dough is too warm, wrap it up and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough on a flour dusted surface. Use any kind of cookie cutters.

For the icing I simply squeezed 
1 lemon and added
about 250g icing sugar
and covered the cooled down cookies! Done and eaten in a blink!
