I'm not the world's greatest cookie baker but this recipe by Giada De Laurentiis not only came out perfect, I actually ended up with the amount of cookies indicated. And they taste so good!

These cookies were wonderful! I substituted whole wheat flour and brown sugar, and added a 1/2 teaspoon of well-ground coffee. They came out nice and chewy.

This was absolutely fabulous. I used only 1 half a cup of toffee bits, but next time I think I'll add more. I loved the combination of the hazelnuts and the chocolate. It had almost a slight coffee taste to it. I made these for my husband's employees and they devoured the cookies before he could even sample them. Giada is the best!

One of my favorite cookies ever. I have taken them to many parties and they are always the first to disappear. I find hazelnuts to be too time consuming and often substitute pecans, not quite as good but no one else ever notices!
