Don’t you just love the holidays, it’s the perfect time to try out a new Christmas cookie recipe. Cookies make great gifts or they are best enjoyed when you share them with friends and family.

I love making these for the holidays and I’m not sure if that thumbprint just adds a touch of love to it to make it a wonderful gift.

Rolling the cookies in hazelnut add that extra special touch of crunch and kicks it up a notch from your regular thumbprint cookies although you can’t go wrong with either.

This is the perfect chocolate flavor without having to melt any chocolate, who doesn’t love Nutella?

The sugar and butter are creamed together and you’ll need to separate the egg. The egg white is reserved for coating the cookie in it so that you can roll it in the hazelnuts.

You then bake the cookies for a short time, then press into it with your thumb to create a well.

Hence, why they’re called thumbprint cookies.

Then you add the filling and bake again.
