Add hazelnut powder, flour and melted butter. Mix well. In another bowl, beat the egg whites with the powdered sugar. Gently fold them into the mixture with a marysee. Pour the cookie dough onto a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Bake the cookie for 8 to 10 minutes at 180°C. Take the cookie out of the oven and let it cool down before peeling it off the paper and cutting a rectangle of 20X10cm.

Return to the saucepan and cook over low heat until 82ºC. Remove from the heat and add the gelatine, squeezed out of the water. Pour the hot cream over the hazelnut praline and mix.

The next day, remove the cake from the freezer. Cover the surface of the cake with the frosting brought to 35°C. Let stand in the refrigerator for a few minutes until the frosting gels.
