(I have doubled the chocolate crackle recipe I've used for years, and replaced the walnuts with hazelnuts, aka. filberts.)
Fireside Hazelnut Crackles
2 cups semi-sweet choco chips
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped hazelnuts
powdered sugar (approx. 1 cup)
Melt chips in micro safe bowl. Combine with sugar and oil. Add vanilla.
Combine flour, baking powder & salt. Add to choco mixture. Sir in nuts.
Chill dough. Make a ball out of a teaspoon of dough, roll in powdered sugar,
Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven 10-12 minutes.
Cool on rack.
I added a piece of candy corn to the top while they were still hot.
Had lots left-over from halloween & it made them sort of seasonally festive.
Don't put them on before baking unless you want them to run all over the baking sheet.....
don't ask me how i know this.....
(Crushed candy cane bits are nice at Christmas.)
(Am freezing these for Thanksgiving.)
