White Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies Recipe

White Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies Recipe

This is a cookie you will want to make again and again. I like to take it to church get-togethers and family reunions. It's very delicious...crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. -Denise DeJong, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
