Hazelnut is one of my favorites – especially during the autumn months.

One of my favorite flavors, this hazelnut recipe comes from one of the most comprehensive vintage cookbooks I’ve found – Favorite Recipes of Presbyterian Women.

This recipe didn’t actually give good instructions for the egg wash. After only listing 4 egg yolks and then instructing you to place all 4 in the cookie dough mixture, it then instructed you to use the remaining egg yolk with an unspecified amount of milk to make the egg wash.

So I have adjusted and updated.
