  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, confectioners' sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water and vinegar, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
