Smell of Cookies

Federica Piccinini

I’ve been lovin’ trying out new and different recipes when I have time. Today here in Italy, is the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, is a national holiday. There are celebrations throughout Italy. No work for me today, so I’ve decided to bake some Chocolate and Hazelnut cookies.

The smell coming from the oven as these cookies was baking was amazing! They’re so yummy!

I really enjoy making cookies and cakes in this time of the year, and you?
Here the recipe:
180g flour
100g chopped hazelnuts
150g melted butter
120g brown sugar
1 egg
100g chocolate chips
Brings together all the ingredients in a bowl, mix them initially with a fork and then with your hands.
Let rest the dough for 1 hour. Make little balls, and drop onto baking sheets at least two inches apart. Bake at 180 degrees for 15 min. Enjoy!

    Federica! I've missed you! I've been so busy lately, but I've made a comment to be back in blogland more frequently.

    Chocolate and Hazlenut? Well, in theory I'll have to try it, but I don't know if I'll have time. Some of my favorite recipes are my Italian sis-in-law's though.

    Your Chocolate and Hazelnut cookies really look great, mmmmhhhhmmm!!! Thenaks for the receipe. In Austria the 8th of Decenber is also a celebration day – but some of the shops are opened, because they need the money of the shoppers … I didn't go to work today but I had to prepare a Christmay market, so it was some kind of working day for me…
    Thenks for stopping by on P.S.
    Ciao, Traude

    Hi Federica,

    Your cookies look divine! We went to Mass last night to celebrate.

    I wanted to thank you for your big hug all the way from Italy…I just adore you and it would give Papa Calentino the biggest smile to know that someone in Italy was thinking and praying for him.

    Love and hugs,
