These are so crunchy they should be dunked (Coffee, Latte, Espresso, Vino, etc.). If you don't have hazelnuts, use almonds instead.
Hazelnut Melting Moments
A cute thumbprint cookie that melts in your mouth. Classy enough for any occasion.
Italian Crisp Wafer cookies made with a patterned iron. This recipe has chocolate and ground nuts. These are also good when topped with your favorite chocolate icing.
Chocolate Pile-Up Cookies
As the title implies, this cookie has chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. It's dark and rich and kind of over the top, but will certainly satisfy a chocoholic craving!
Twice-baked cookie that can have miniature chocolate chips in the batter. Use brandy in place of the hazelnut liqueur if you like!
I made these on election day and friends and co-workers loved the hint of orange and the sparkle of heat from a pinch of cayenne pepper. Hazelnuts are a star in these brownies, but walnuts can be substituted.
Made with pulverized filberts. While in Germany, my landlord gave me this recipe. I have made it many times, and it is a real treat. Cookies can be stored for several weeks in tightly sealed jars or tins.
Oma Kiener's Hazelnut Christmas Cookies
An ice box cookie, these were one of the two Christmas cookie recipes my German grandmother made every year until her death at age 92. While they may not be fancy like other Christmas cookies recipes, they are easy to make and taste very nutty. They make me think of Christmas and my grandmother every time I enjoy one.
Authentic German Lebkuchen
This recipe is over 150 years old and has been baked by my family for many generations for Christmas. They are much easier to make than other lebkuchen and ingredients have been updated to what's available now. They are made with almond flour, hence are gluten free and also contain no dairy.
