I added orange zest to the "white" cookie dough. The combination with the chocolate was amazing!
I made a batch of these and they were very good.....I didn't have hazelnuts so didn't put any nuts in but of course did put the chocolate hazelnut spread. Mine didn't turn out as perfect looking as shown in the picture but very good! Thanks for the recipe..........
Well, these are certainly delish!! My only trouble was with the waxed paper on and off...mine didn't turn out as pinwheels but looked marbleized - no problem still pretty and so good! Try your hand at these and you won't be disappointed. Hubby had a hard time stopping.
these are so pretty and so easy. my friends were impressed and had to make another batch the next day.
