i found this recipe on alpineberry's blog: http://alpineberry.blogspot.com/2006/08/nutella-cookies.html i must have made the cookies a lot smaller than her because i got twice as many! they ended up being about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. i made a few slight changes, but nothing substantial... Mm! delicious! i didn't use the hazelnuts because i didn't have any on hand, but they would add good texture i'm sure
