Hazelnut and Orange Cookies

Mmmm...soft and chewy
Mmmm…soft and chewy

I experimented with ground hazelnuts in place of ground almonds to make a cookie and was pleasantly surprised.  These are a soft, chewy cookie with a lovely hint of orange that combines well with the hazelnut.   The recipe is easy to do.  You could get the children to whip up a batch whilst you sit back on the sofa!
