My brother, Christian, loves snickerdoodles, and since we were celebrating his birthday tonight (dinner at a great local restaurant called Fonda Rosa) I figured I'd make him some.
They turned out really good (from what I hear from Christian and Julian, I don't have a big sweet tooth so I haven't had one yet). Hazelnuts are definitely my favorite nut, so you can't go wrong with these cookies.

|Here's the hazelnut filling. All done in the food processor, just hazelnuts, butter & powdered sugar. I added some Nutella to make it more creamy (it was grainy from the nuts).|
|Ready to mix it all up!|
