These cookies have been on my list of recipes to try for quite a while, and this month's Alphabakes challenge (hosted by Caroline Makes...) for the letter "H" provided the perfect reason to try them. The cookies were crispy, but I think they needed fewer hazelnuts and more chocolate chips.
1 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped finely
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine hazelnuts, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Cream together butter and shortening. Then cream in the sugars. Add in egg and vanilla extract.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 12-16 minutes until the cookies are slightly golden. Cool on a wire rack.
Yields 36 cookies.
