  4. When the hazelnuts are completely cool, pulse them in a food processor until finely ground.

  5. Transfer the ground nuts to a bowl.

  7. Add the ground hazelnuts, flour, baking powder, cloves and salt and pulse until combined.

  8. Add the eggs, brandy and vanilla and process just until a soft dough forms.

  9. Scrape the dough onto a large sheet of plastic wrap.

  10. Transfer one-third of the dough to a separate sheet of plastic and roll it into a 6-inch log.

  11. Pat the remaining dough into a 6-inch disk.

  12. Wrap and refrigerate the dough at least 2 hours or overnight, until firm.

  13. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
