these are the worst cookies I've ever made. they keep burning at the bottom even though the temperature isNt that high, maybe something is wrong with my ovenbut all I know is that I made a batch of s***. Burnt and undercooked looking that is torn from sticking to the bottom I have no idea what to do with it. I want to hurl it out my windowtoo embarrassed to show anybody
Italian Hazelnut Cookies
From EatingWell: September/October 2008
These crispy cookies are made with Piedmontese staples—hazelnuts and eggs—and called Brutti Ma Buoni: literally, “Ugly But Good.” But they are really more plain-looking than “ugly,” and pack a powerful, sweet, nutty burst of flavor, making them welcome at any table.

I made these this morning for a party later today. As far as the peeling of the hazelnuts go it was so easy! Didn't spend more than 2-3 mins doing it. I think mine were a bit over cooked, but served with a glass of milk as a dunking cookie saved the day. Yum!!
Do you think this recipe would work if I do not peel the hazelnuts. Just don't see myself doing that in the greater scope of my daily duties.
I went to three different supermarkets - could not find hazlenuts, so then I went to a nut/coffee specialty store and found some already roasted and peeled. It was worth the trouble. I made these at Christmastime and everyone raved about them. Then enjoyed them from the freezer, too. They freeze really well. It was a fun cookie to make, too. Beat your egg whites till they are stiff enough that you can turn the bowl upside down and they stay put.
