For these cookies you will need only 8 ingredients, including CHESTNUT and BUCKWHEAT flour, both gluten-free and nutritiously rich and full of vitamins and minerals. If you don't have on hand buckwheat flour, freely use spelt or plain flour instead (in this case the cookies won't be gluten-free).
We don't use much sugar in this recipe, as chestnut flour has its natural sweetness so if added to the dough, you can reduce the amount of sugar needed. For refreshing citrus aroma we added freshly squeezed orange juice and orange zest. Don't skip adding vanilla bean paste, too.
For this recipe you don't need much equipment, just one bowl - no need for electric mixer, rolling pin or cookie cutters. Once you get all needed ingredients, you can start making a dough for these simple cookies.
