The inspiration for this cute cookie came from my sister's description of a hazelnut cookie she tried in Italy. She declared my version to be a wonderful approximation. My family likes to help fill and trim them. —Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois
Meet the Cook: My mom sent me this recipe. We love it, and so does company I serve it to.
I inherited my love of cooking from my mother. She's a former home economics teacher. When we were growing up, each of us five kids had a night a week when we planned and prepared supper for the rest of the family.
Our home is "way out in the sticks", 15 miles from town and 5 miles from the nearest neighbor. My husband and I have a son, 20, and a daughter, 17.

A heavenly sweet maple filling makes these scrumptious spritz cookies a little different. You can count on them to come out buttery and tender. They're almost too pretty to eat.— Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri
