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..........
