This is a really nice recipe if you want a butter cookie with a twist. The cookie itself is more of a soft thick cookie rather than a flat crisp one. Also this cookie is sweet but not too sweet. The Hazelnut and Chocolate are a perfect combination. These cookies are great to add to a holiday cookie tray or just to have in the evening as a special treat with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea.
