Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 egg
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.

  1. These look delicious!! Thanks for entering them to AlphaBakes!

  2. Re your comment about needing more chocolate chips - you can never have too many chocolate chips!! These look scrumptious just as they are though, thanks for entering them into AlphaBakes!
