Serves:

2 1/2 dozen

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter or margarine
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1
egg
1/2 tsp
vanilla
1 1/2 c
minus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
baking soda
2
squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
2
dozen filbert nuts, toasted and skinned

Directions Step-By-Step

1
**Tip**
Toast filberts for 10 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees until skins crack and flake. Place filberts in a kitchen towel and let steam for 5 minutes. Rub filberts with towel to remove skin. Some skin will remain on the filberts and that's okay. It will just make the cookie look more pretty. :)
2
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
3
Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda in a separate bowl. Combine dry ingredients with the wet mixture into thirds. Beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate.
4
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. It helps to have your hands lightly floured. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Place a filbert into each cookie.
5
Bake cookies for 10 minutes at 350 degrees or until lightly browned. Cool for a minute before removing cookies onto rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
