I made these cookies with finely chopped, lightly toasted pecans instead of hazelnuts and they turned out very tasty, light and crisp. However, the recipe doesn't make as many as it promises -- I even scaled up to 72 servings, and this produced less than 3 dozen cookies (my "walnut sized" lumps of dough were about a rounded teaspoon full). The dough was very quick to make in a mixer, though, and satisfying to work with. Thanks for this recipe!

My husband is Russian and when he tasted them they were by far the best that I have tried to replicate. They are so moist and just melt in your mouth. We will definatly be using this recipe again.

Excellent recipe! I followed it exactly with the exception of adding chopped hazelnut since I couldn't find it in the store. I added pecans instead and it was very good. This recipe is simple and quick to make! Thanks for sharing!
