Winner of the Cookie Celebration! Contest

Jackie Mento


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.

Pretty as a picture AND easy to make? You know it! These cookie are so creative and so beautiful. We simply fell in love with the hazelnut and chocolate filling. They're the perfect accent to your favorite cup of coffee or tea! The Test Kitchen
