"Don't ever make these again!" Becky says, and then smiles, "I'm addicted."
Well, I could definitely see that happening. I baked these on Friday afternoon and if I didn't hide them, in of all places, the cookie jar, they would definitely not have survived the hordes of people in and out of our house this weekend. Before they even cooled from the oven, Mom, daughters, nephews, brother and future sister-in-law all gave them the thumbs up.
They were easy to make, with minimal fuss but I guess could get pricey with hazelnuts ringing in at a whopping $8.99 a pound at Whole Foods but definitely worth it. I used the food processor to not only finely chop the nuts but also to do a number on the bittersweet chocolate which melts lusciously throughout.
One of these days, I'm going to have to get the kids to rank these recipes in order of preference but not yet. Oh and I haven't figured out the Weight Watcher points yet but I will, and will update this entry when I do. Definitely a make again.
Oh the white coating is from a roll in confectioner's sugar before baking.
Next up, probably the almond fingers and/or the polenta cookies.
Update: each of these cookies is two Weight Watchers points.
