Want to relieve some stress?

Hazelnut Sandwich Cookies by BeesKneesBakery.

Take a whack at some hazelnuts. I love hazelnuts. They are fantastic to eat as is or to use in baking but they are nearly impossible to crack with a nut cracker. Instead we put a couple in a ziplock bag and smash them with a hammer and then dump them on a tray to weed out all the bits of shell and skin we don't want. It's kind of fun :)
