Hasselnusstaler (Hazelnut Cookie)
This is a cookie for hazelnut lovers! It is loaded with hazelnuts and has a whole hazelnut in the middle. Hazelnuts are very expensive. $10 a pound at Ward's, which makes this cookie an expensive one. I happen to like hazelnuts. They used to grow wild in the fields near the village I was growing up. As kids my friends and I liked to pick the hazelnuts but I do not remember eating the ones we picked. I guess we just played with them. My mom always got them at the store and they are expensive even in Austria.
