Even as an adult I find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve. Yuletide excitement is a potent caffeine, no matter your age. ~Terri Guillemets
My husbands favorite cookie is a black and white shortbread he buys at Costco every so often as a special treat. So, his request for one of my 25 Days of Christmas Cookies post was to duplicate these beautiful and tasty gems. The recipe I chose was from Ina Garten and the Food Network.
I adapted the recipe just a bit by exchanging the vanilla extract for Frangelico (a hazelnut Liquor), that adds a subtle hazelnut flavor to the cookie.
Black and White Hazelnut Shortbread Cookies are buttery and flaky with just a touch of sweetness. A dark bittersweet chocolate adds the perfect finishing touch .
