Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C ).
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Gradually beat in the egg yolk, vanilla, and lemon zest. Stir in the flour and ground hazelnuts with a large spoon.
  3. Shape dough into walnut sized balls and place them 2 inches apart on an unprepared cookie sheet. Make an indentation in the center of each ball with your finger. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
  4. While the cookies are baking, melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat, or in the microwave. Stir chips until smooth. When cookies come out of the oven, spoon 1/2 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into the indentation. When cookies are completely cool, dust lightly with confectioners' sugar.

These were a bit more labor intensive than I expected - but well worth the work. I bought hazelnuts still in the shell and had to shell them. Then I roasted them in a 350 oven for 10 minutes and rubbed them in a clean dish towel to remove the brown skin. Then I had to ground them for the recipe. Two pounds of hazelnuts in the shell made about 2 1/4 cups of ground hazelnuts. After all that, the recipe was a snap! I would definitely make these again but will probably look for hazelnuts already shelled and peeled.

Pretty Good. My husband loves these. Very pretty and uncommon taste. HINT: Buy Hazelnuts all ready shelled and grind them in a mini food processor. Also mix white and milk CHoclate morsels for the filling and swirl them. Another thing, don't make them too big, or the choclate center is worthless.

Although the dough was hard to work with and it was more labor intensive than I expected, it was worth the work. It is one of the best cookies I've ever tatsted.

This is one of the few times I have rated a recipe five stars. This is excellent. I have just taken a batch out of the oven and one happened to topple over as I was moving the cookies to the cooling rack. Too bad, I had too eat it. OMG! These are divine. Thanks for sharing this will become a family favourite for sure!

Great Cookie...I added a little bit of water to make the dough more manageable...this helped when rolling the dough into balls...I also used milk-chocolate morsels....yummy
