  • 200 g Butter
  • 300 g Spelt flour type 630
  • 1 tsp Ginger bread spice
  • 150 g Raw cane sugar
  • 80 g Roasted hazelnuts


  • Process the gingerbread spice with the raw cane sugar into powdered sugar (18 seconds / speed 10) and transfer. Chop the hazelnuts on speed 6/7 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients (only 100 g of the powdered sugar) and process into a crumbly dough for 35 seconds / speed 4 or 5.
  • Chill the dough for about 1 to 2 hours. Cut small balls from the dough with your hands and shape into croissants. Place them next to each other on two baking sheets lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees top / bottom heat for about 15 minutes until golden yellow. Remove and toss in the rest of the powdered sugar while still warm.
