Can you believe it?!? And what a better way to celebrate Christmas, than with a festive nutmeg cookies, stuffed with chocolate chips and hazelnuts! 

 

Nutmeg Cookies with Chocolate and Hazelnuts

 

Nutmeg is one of my favourite spices, and I do like to add it to…errmmm…almost anything, especially at this time of the year! I absolutely adore the freshly grated nutmeg, the fragrance is just incredible! And I’m pretty sure you will agree, it smells and tastes like Christmas. Along with cinnamon and allspice this awesome ingredient is a must for all of your festive baking! If you can’t find a whole nutmeg, use the ground one, which is widely available and tastes just as good.

As if nutmeg cookies were not good enough, these are also stuffed with chocolate chips and hazelnuts. Because why not? It is Christmas and it’s just how we roll. Indulge and spoil yourself, as of next week we all are more likely to be living on salads and juices 😉

So this will be my final Christmas recipe for this year by the look of it. Because it’s time to take time off. And because, when I’m back with the next recipe, Christmas will be over 🙁  So let’s enjoy it, while it lasts. Let’s have some quality time with friends, family and cookies.

And just like my Vegan Florentine Biscuits or Cranberry and Amaretto Biscotti, they will make a perfect gift for all the foodies and cookie lovers out there!

Merry Christmas!!!

    Oh, these cookies look absolutely stunning! I have an extreme amount of hazelnuts right now, since I discovered a hazelnut tree near my flat, so I’ll be definitely making these babies – pinned.
    Happy holidays! <3
