Hazelnut Spirals, take 2


These are a little too fiddly for my taste, but they are much better this time around. And they still taste good with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce! I added about three tablespoons of half-and-half to the dough, and substituted dark brown sugar for granulated in the filling. Mmmm.

Still, if I’m working this hard on a cookie recipe? I had better end up with cherry pie. Or chocolate cream pie — even better!


About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.
