      Made my some vanilla sugar just for this recipe, but used almond extract in place of the almond essence! Ended up with a bit over 4 dozen cookies with the goodies spared around amongst several different groups! Although hazelnuts are rarely used in my kitchen, these were very tasty little treats & much enjoyed! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while in Germany with ZWT6]
