What are the most popular cookies on your holiday cookie tray? In our house, these hazelnut sandies would be the first to disappear. First there is the double dose of hazelnut in the form of praline paste and ground hazelnuts to add a depth of flavor. Then there is the crisp texture, always appealing to cookie fanatics. Then the appealing Linzer cookie shape to catch the eye. And a generous dusting of powdered sugar elevates this cookie to top billing.
This recipe is one of many provided to us by commercial bakers who use American Almond Products. We scaled down the recipe to a manageable size although you might have to double the batch to make enough for all your fans.
