    kids loved it. i didn't see many adults eating them though. I used Nutella and ground hazelnuts. They looked pretty and were really easy to make.  -  02 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were very good and very easy to make. I used granulated sugar instead of powdered for the top and it was just fine. I will do these again for sure.  -  21 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These turned out pretty good. When you roll up the dough, chill the "log" well before slicing or else you will have a soggy dough mess (like my first batch!) especially if you are baking these on a hot summer day, like I did. Also, instead of sprinkling the pastries with powdered sugar, I sprinkled them with the leftover chopped hazelnuts. They turned out pretty yummy, although kind of expensive to make if you don't already have these ingredients on hand. I would probably make these again, but save them for a special occasion. They would look stunning on a Christmas cookie tray!  -  06 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
