  • Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are firm and very light brown. Remove from oven. Let cool in pan for 3 minutes. Transfer paper bake cups to a wire rack and cool completely. Spoon desired flavors of jam into indentations. If desired, drizzle with Powdered Sugar Icing.


If you can't find blanched hazelnuts, toast 1/2 cup hazelnuts at 350°F about 10 minutes or until skins begin to crack. Remove from oven; cool slightly. Rub hazelnuts vigorously in a clean towel to remove as much of the skin as you can.


Layer cookies between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
