Hazelnut Crinkles

One question....how come when you make cookies they never look as good as the one in the picture in the book? huh.

3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. hazelnut spread with cocoa (I'm wondering what this is at first....it's Nutella. Why can't they just say that!?)
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3 Tblspn. white coarse sugar crystals (again!? Sugar in the Raw) or granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat sugar, hazelnut spread, butter, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.
2. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar crystals. Place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookies sheet.
3. Bake 7-9 minutes or until puffed and edges are set. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool.
