Chocolate hazelnut cookies

  • ¾ cup chopped hazelnuts
  • cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar

Chocolate hazelnut cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and ginger. Set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat the butter, granulated sugar, raw sugar, and brown sugar on high speed until light and fluffy (5-7 minutes). Scrape the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  • While reducing the speed to medium, add the eggs one at a time until combined. Add in the vanilla and honey.
  • Reduce the speed to low and add the dry ingredients; beat until completely combined. Add the chocolate and hazelnuts just until incorporated.
  • Scoop about 3 tbsp of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place on parchment paper about 2 inches apart from each other. Chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Remove cookies from fridge and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Slightly cool cookies and if desired sprinkle crushed ferrero rocher over cookies.


  • Cookie dough can be made 1 month ahead of time. Put in resealable freezer bags. Bake from frozen.
