  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then stir in the orange juice, lemon zest, and cinnamon. Fold in the flour and hazelnuts, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Form into 1/2 inch by 3 inch sticks, and place onto a baking sheet 1 inch apart.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
