Hazelnut Cookies

I love them – the big ones as well as the small ones. Though if I’m honest I prefer baking the small cookies. It’s much easier to store and to eat them because they disappear in your mouth with one or two bites and their chocolate doesn’t stick on your fingers. I found the following recipe on lecker.de and tried it immediately. It’s hard to close the box and put it back to the kitchen cabinet. Try it yourself – it’s quite easy!
