Step 1

Mix in a large bowl the flour, yeast, sugar and ground hazelnuts. Add the butter and eggs and work with a fork. Then knead with your hands into a ball and add a little cinnamon.

Step 2

Form three balls of dough.
In the first ball add food colouring (the colour of your choice-i went for green to make the trees).
In the second, melt two squares of chocolate and knead well until the colour is uniform.
The last ball you can leave plain.

Step 3

Roll out the 3 balls and cut out the Xmas shapes and brush over with egg yolk. Place them on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and bake at 180 degrees for 8 minutes.

Happy Xmas!
