Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C ).
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Gradually beat in the egg yolk, vanilla, and lemon zest. Stir in the flour and ground hazelnuts with a large spoon.
- Shape dough into walnut sized balls and place them 2 inches apart on an unprepared cookie sheet. Make an indentation in the center of each ball with your finger. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
- While the cookies are baking, melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat, or in the microwave. Stir chips until smooth. When cookies come out of the oven, spoon 1/2 teaspoon of the melted chocolate into the indentation. When cookies are completely cool, dust lightly with confectioners' sugar.

Then I roasted them in a 350 oven for 10 minutes and rub..." See morebed them in a clean dish towel to remove the brown skin. Then I had to ground them for the recipe. Two pounds of hazelnuts in the shell made about 2 1/4 cups of ground hazelnuts. After all that, the recipe was a snap! I would definitely make these again but will probably look for hazelnuts already shelled and peeled."
"Pretty Good. My husband loves these. Very pretty and uncommon taste. HINT: Buy Hazelnuts all ready shelled and grind them in a mini food processor. Also mix white and milk CHoclate morsels for the..." See more filling and swirl them. Another thing, don't make them too big, or the choclate center is worthless."
