Nussecken (Nut Triangles)

Another cookie for hazelnut lovers! This triangles are made with a layer of tart dough which is brushed with apricot jam and topped with a filling of chopped and ground hazelnuts which were "cooked" in butter and sugar. Traditionally only the corners are glazed with chocolate. I find that this is unpractical because being a delicate cookie the corners always break off when I dip them in the chocolate. The chocolate glaze turned out to be a bit messy. If I had more time I'd make them look prettier. Maybe next year....
