Honey Spice Hazelnut Cookies

Honey Spice Hazelnut Cookies

Honey Spice Hazelnut Cookies ~ these nutty, glazed cookies are a perfect way to ease into fall baking, and they’ll provide a little old world spice for your holiday cookie assortment later in the season. The wonderful play between the brown sugar, honey, and spices skew these cookies a little toward the adult side, even before they get their crosshatching of spiked glaze. Set them out with after dinner coffee and be prepared for recipe requests! (You can leave out the alcohol in the glaze for family noshing.)

The glaze will harden for stacking and packing, so no need to leave it off if you’re giving or shipping these cookies. I’ve always thought that if I’m going to go to the trouble to bake homemade cookies they should be something that I can’t find in the cookie aisle of my supermarket, and that’s certainly the case with these spice cookies. They have a simple, vintage vibe that’s really appealing, I think you’ll love them. Hazelnuts make a good choice for special occasion cookies because they’re a relatively expensive ingredient that you don’t see very often in commercial cookies and desserts. They also give these cookies a really nice texture.
