Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Caramel Thumbprint Cookies
These little cookies combine a fabulous French flavor trio -- chocolate, caramel, and hazelnuts -- into one-bite wonders. To remove skins from hazelnuts, place the nuts on a sheet pan in a 350 degrees oven for about 6 minutes. Then put the nuts between the folds of a terry cloth kitchen towel and rub vigorously.
Layer cookies between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature or in refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
