Fudgy Hazelnut Cookies

Wandering around grocery stores looking for new products, sometimes gives me the best ideas for recipes. I love finding products that I have never used before that I can work into recipes. These fudgy hazelnut cookies came from one of those trips.

Not to long ago, I was in my regular grocery store looking for marmalade when I spotted the chocolate hazelnut spread. I have tasted it before, but had never used it in a recipe. All of a sudden, pictures of chocolaty cookies popped into my head. I threw a few jars of the spread into my cart and got home as soon as I could to bake some cookies.

A long afternoon of attempts later, this simple recipe came about. These fudgy hazelnut cookies are delicious. Chewy with crispy edges and easy to make, they are perfect with hot coffee or chocolate whenever a chocolate craving hits.

Easy enough for after school snacks, these cookies are also great for holiday cookie exchanges, hostess gifts and parties.

I never did pick up the marmalade. I will have to wait for that inspiration to strike me again.
