OMG if you love hazelnuts like we do, you'll love the Jif Hazelnut Spread and these cookies! We enjoyed them with milk and I sneaked some with my coffee for breakfast. Even crushed a cookie over a bowl of ice cream.

I did not have Jiff Hazelnut spread but did have Nutella. I know as Jiff is the sponsor of this recipe, this could be deleted. lol Anyway, Since I was feeling lazy, I made this into a bar cookie instead as directed at the bottom of the recipe. Turned out very good. I used the crisco sticks, but since I didn't have the butter flavored ones I substituted about 2 T of shortening for butter to give some butter flavor. In bar form these are somewhat similar to brownies but my husbands says "better than brownies". Pretty easy to make and nice flavors.

Absolutely loved these cookies! I followed the directions exactly using the Mocha Cappuccino spread. I will definitely be making them again.
