Okay, a few things: Food processor-- Put the nuts in first, grind to a coarse grain, then add the flour and seasonings. Nuts just kind of floated around in the cup of flour, and I had to put it through a sieve to get the nuts. Baking-- These spread about a centimeter in all directions as they bake. Complex or subtly curved shapes (snails, hearts, multi-stroke kanji) do not survive. Shapes with sharp corners, like stars, turned out surprisingly well. Either stick to circles, stars, and certain flower shapes, or do your cutting post-baking (I really wanted those snails). The dough was tasty, though I'd probably add more lemon zest and maybe some extract or liquer next time. I substituted a tin of peanut with coconut from the oriental grocery for the hazelnuts, and they were nice. Any distintively flavorful nut would do well. I misread the recipe as advising "lemon molasses", which confused me, so I ended up with bootstrap molasses in my cookie sandwiches. It, um, seems alright. They're not seeping too badly, and after they've chillded I think they'll be fine. The holes I made, having shrunk in baking, actually looked pretty classy with the molasses showing through. Again, a star shape worked well, although it did not really resemble a star. The cookies were pretty crumbly, though again I think that would be improved by more solid shapes. I've yet to try a sandwich, but the scraps from my pan were quite nice.
