The flavor reminds me of Snickerdoodles! Very good and easy to make. My only mistake was not making the whole recipe. I only made half :) My store was out of hazelnuts, so I used toasted almonds, which worked fine. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.

Aside from having a marvelous taste with the spice (I doubled the cinnamon) this dough was a pleasure to work with and the cookies didn't crumble when I sliced them. I didn't have hazelnuts so I used walnuts which was fine. These are well named, they are pure pleasure when dunked into your coffee. Thank you for this lovely treat.
