    Thanks for the link, betrhalf! Those square papers are hard to find. I love this recipe! I make them every February for my nephew's birthday, and any other time he'll be visiting. This is the treat he always asks for. I replace half a cup of the flour with hazelnut flour, and sometimes omit the hazelnuts if I don't have any on hand.

    To VictoriaLK: I found these They are brown instead of white, but they are square. :) Hope this helps

    This was the 2nd Christmas for these, and there will be no end in sight. They are absolutely delicious. I used a 9x9 pan instead of the unusual 8x11 which made a slightly thicker cookie. I cut them into smaller bars than indicated (around 1.5" square) and piped warm Nutella from a pastry bag onto each. Lining the pan with 2 pieces of foil allows you to pick up the entire slab, after totally cooled, and cut into nice squares. Any idea where I can get those square paper cups as in the photo?

    elviraann: I know how difficult it is to crack a hazelnut. Any easy ideas?

    I thought these were really good - they never stood a a chance in our house - they disappeared quickly. Rich tasty buttery hazelnut flavor. We will definately have these again.

    I made these last night and I think it was a waste of hazelnuts, nothing special about them at all. I would not make them again, I was disappointed after reading all the reviews.

    I just made these on a whim. I had the recipe saved from the recipe of the day. They smell divine. They were quick easy and after dinner tonight I will know what my mom and brothers think! I omitted the hazelnuts though due to dental problems and added sweetened coconut the last 10 minutes of baking. So i hope this change just adds to its greatness.
