2 Lb 4 Oz American Almond Hazelnut (Filbert) Flour
3 Lb 15 Oz Bread Flour
3 Lb 15 Oz Unsalted Butter
2 Lb 1 Oz Granulated Sugar
1 Fl. Oz Vanilla Extract
0.2 Oz Baking Soda
Spread out the American Almond Hazelnut (Filbert) Flour on a sheet pan. Bake at 375°F for approximately 10 minutes until lightly toasted and fragrant. Cool.
Blend all ingredients on low speed in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle.
Divide and scale the dough into uniform pieces, 10 ounces each.
Roll each piece of dough into logs 1-inch in diameter.
Chill the logs of dough for at least 2 hours. (The dough may also be frozen at this point.)
Using a rolling bear claw cutter or other tool, mark the logs of dough to insure uniform ¼-inch thick slices. (This dough may also be cut using a guitar slicer.)
Cut the dough and place the slices on parchment-lined sheet pans spaced 1 ½ inches apart.
Bake at 375°F until uniformly browned, for 10 to 15 minutes.
