Hazelnut Tea Cookies

I don't know why, but a while back I thought it was the best idea to buy a 1 pound bag of blanched hazelnuts. Whatever the reasoning was, I'm glad I bought them. Because after staring at me for long, waiting to be used, I finally used them. And yum! I'm very happy that I used some of the hazelnuts for this recipe. These tea cookies are crisp, nutty and not overwhelming sweet. I toasted the hazelnuts in a pan and I loved how the aroma filled up the entire place. There is something comforting about the scent of hazelnuts. I just love them.
