Hazelnuts cookies

Hazelnuts cookies are soft inside and have an intense flavor. Excellent on all occasions, from breakfast to tea time they have a truly irresistible scent. This recipe that I propose today is from my family, exactly from my grandmother, who used to prepare these biscuits together with many others typical of our area in Italy.
