Preparation steps


For the dough: Heat cream, butter and syrup in a saucepan until melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, orange zest, baking soda, flour and nuts.  Mix until a smooth dough is formed. Divide into two portions and form into logs 3 cm (approximately 1 inch) in diameter. Cover each with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Slice logs into 1 cm (approximately 3/8 inch) thick slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Remove and let cool.


For the powdered sugar icing: Combine powdered sugar with lemon juice until thick and spreadable. Add half of the hazelnuts to the powdered sugar icing.

For the chocolate icing: Coarsely chop chocolate and melt over simmering water. Add other half of the ground hazelnuts into the melted chocolate. Let cool.

For the chocolate decoration: Mix milk into cocoa powder until thick. Spoon cocoa powder mixture into a freezer bag. Cut a small corner in the bag
