These are so crunchy they should be dunked (Coffee, Latte, Espresso, Vino, etc.). If you don't have hazelnuts, use almonds instead.

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!

Victory Brownies

Rating: Unrated
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.

Authentic German Lebkuchen

Rating: Unrated
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.
