Hazelnut Cookies | Pink Wings
The other week one of hubby's co-workers gave him a new flavor of Ritter bar that they brought back from Europe. All chocolate of course gets passed on to me :):) and I gladly sampled it. It was called hazelnut cookie, and it is my new favorite flavor, seriously good guys!  So inspired by that, and using my hubs' favorite cookie recipe as my starting point, I put together this recipe. It took me maybe three attempts to settle on this recipe because on every re-do I felt like it needed a little more hazelnut flavor. But I think I'm finally happy with this one.

Do you guys have a favorite treat you've come across on your travels??

Hazelnut Cookies
Makes 1 dozen
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, not packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut meal
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 3.5 oz Heath chocolate-toffee bits or chopped toffee candy bar
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts + extra for dipping
  • good dark chocolate for dipping

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.

Cream together the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla and combine.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, hazelnut meal, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix into wet batter just until combined. Then fold in the oats, chocolate-toffee bits, and chopped hazelnuts. Use a cookie scoop or your hands to make about 1-1/2 inch balls and place onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown around the edges, then cool completely on a cooling rack.

Melt about 2 oz. of dark chocolate in a small bowl. Place your leftover chopped hazelnuts in a separate small bowl. Dip your cooled cookies into the chocolate, sprinkle with hazelnuts, and place back on your cooling rack or parchment paper until chocolate is hardened.

  7. Ritter sport chocolate is my favorite! These look like such a yummy treat! My favorite treat will always be oatmeal raisin cookies, but if I have to choose one from my travels, it'd have to be the blueberry cookie from Milk Bar in NYC. :)

  21. Ritter Sport reminds me of my childhood vacations to Germany. My favorite Ritter is the one with yogurt (the white one), but the light blue one is also really good. I haven't tried the one you had, but the cookies look really tasty:)

  26. YUM! These look delicious! I looooove hazelnut too. The hubby does not enjoy nuts though... so I may have to make these when I know people will come over and help me eat them! Hmm traveling food faves... I love macarons anytime I find them somewhere, they're so fun and small. I kind of love the pear cider at IKEA. That's not really traveling.. but I can't help it, I have to grab some each time we go! I think it would make a lovely holiday beverage for a party, mix it in with cranberry syrup or juice or something. YUM. Also, There's a chocolate company in Seattle, they make a s'mores chocolate bar and it is hands down the best chocolate bar I have EVER had. Sadly, I've only had one and it was seasonal. I would love to have another someday! haha XO -Alexandra
