Preparation steps

1.

For the cookies: Combine flour, sugar, vanilla sugar and lemon zest on the work surface. Create a well and add egg. Chop butter and sprinkle pieces all over flour. 

2.

Combine mixture with a dough cutter. Knead to form a smooth dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes. 

3.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

4.

Then roll out dough to 3-4 mm (approximately 1/10 inch)thin on a floured surface. Cut out hearts with a cookie cutter. Place all cookies on the sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, until light yellow. Remove from oven, place cookies on a wire rack and let cool. 

5.

For decoration: Roast nuts in a dry pan until fragrant. Add powdered sugar, let caramelize slightly, spread on parchment paper and let cool.

6.

Chop chocolate and melt over a hot water bath. Dip cookies halfway into chocolate, place on parchment paper and sprinkle with nuts. Let dry and serve.
