Hazelnut cookies ingredients
Here is the list of ingredients you need to prepare these Hazelnut Crunchy Cookies:
- 1 cup toasted and chopped hazelnuts.
- 1 cup of wheat flour.
- 1/2 cup butter at room temperature.
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
- 1 egg.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
- 1/4 teaspoon salt.
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips.
How to Make Crunchy Hazelnut Cookies
Step 1: Toast and Chop the Hazelnuts
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden and fragrant.
- Let the hazelnuts cool and then chop them finely.
Step 2: Prepare the Dough
- In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth and creamy.
- Add the egg and vanilla extract, and continue beating until well incorporated.
- In another bowl, combine the wheat flour, baking soda and salt.
- Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix until the dough is smooth.
- Fold the toasted hazelnuts and chocolate chips into the dough.
Step 3: Form Cookies
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Using an ice cream scoop or two spoons, place mounds of dough on the tray, leaving enough space between each one, as the cookies will expand as they bake.
- You can flatten each pile of dough slightly with the back of a spoon if you want thinner cookies.
Step 4: Bake
- Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the tops are lightly browned.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
