i found this recipe on alpineberry's blog: 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

These cookies are good but very sweet! That is the reason for the 4-star rating. They are just too sweet for us, but may be fine for others. I made them with and without hazelnuts and used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I also tried dropping them with a cookie scoop and rolling them by hand into 1-inch balls. Both ways worked great! I baked them for 10 minutes for a soft, chewy cookie.
