Jackie Mento Recipe

By Jackie Mento LivesToEat

One of my favorite flavor combinations is chocolate with hazelnuts. I wanted to make a pretty cookie to serve with a nice cup of tea or hazelnut coffee for a nice afternoon pick-me-up. When my neighbors stop in to say hello or I need to carry a goodie to a pot luck, I just pull these out of the freezer and always get oohs and ahhs because they are so different, pretty, and tasty!
NOTE: I've shown a lot of pictures to make sure the instructions are clear but they really are simple to make. The dough is pretty sturdy and the filling does not come out of the cookies when baking.
