How to make Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies
Step One: Prepare the dough.
In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork or a whisk to combine the flour and the baking soda.
Then in a mixing bowl, beat together the melted butter with the sugar until smooth.
Next, beat in the eggs with the vanilla and then add the dry ingredients from the first bowl and mix until just combined. Lastly, fold in the chocolate and the hazelnuts.
Refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes loosely covered with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap.
Step Two: Bake the cookies.
Preheat the oven to 350 and prep two baking sheets for nonstick. I use parchment paper.
Scoop out tablespoon sized cookie dough and place them onto the prepped sheets, about two inches apart from one another.
Step Three: Bake the cookies.
Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.
Allow the cookies to remain on the baking sheets cool to room temperature (they will harden as they cool).
