Very good recipe although, as other reviewers have mentioned, very labor-intensive. Luckily, I had a cup of toasted ground hazelnuts leftover from another recipe, so I supplemented it with 1/2 cup of pecans. Pecans make an acceptable substitution for those not willing to spend the time cracking open hazelnuts. To further simplify, I'm going to experiment with pressing chocolate wafers or Ghiradelli mint chocolate drops into the cookie prior to baking rather than making thumbprints and filling with melted chocolate chips. I also used the Pampered Chef small scoop and didn't have a problem with the crumbly dough.
