Created by Pille Petersoo


  • Ingredients
  • 4 oz butter softened
  • 1/3 c granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 c buckwheat flour light
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 c chopped hazelnuts or chopped/sliced almonds


  1. Heat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar, followed by the egg.
  4. Mix in the flour, baking powder and nuts. Combine. (If the mixture is on the dry side, add a spoonful or two of cold water)*.
  5. Take a heaped teaspoonful of the mixture, roll into balls and place onto the baking sheet. Gently press with a fork to flatten the cookie dough balls a little.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven until the cookies are light golden.
  7. Let cool for about 5 minutes, then transfer onto the metal rack to cool completely.


* I've also used a different method - combined all the dry ingredients (buckwheat flour, sugar, baking powder), added the grated softened butter and the egg, and simply mixed everything and rolled into walnut-sized balls.
