Delicious gluten-free chewy, chocolate-y hazelnut cookies from The Essential Gluten-Free Cookie Guide.
Ingredients
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 ounces (1 cup) cocoa powder
  • 1.25 ounces (1/4 cup) ground hazelnuts
  • 2.5 ounces (1/2 cup) chopped hazelnuts
  • 5.25 ounces (3/4 cup) chocolate chips or chunks, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Cream together butter and sugars. Add the egg and mix until combined. Add the vanilla, salt, baking soda, ground hazelnuts, and cocoa powder and mix until you have a smooth dough. Stir in the chopped hazelnuts and 3.5 ounces (1/2 cup) of the chocolate chips until distributed throughout.
  3. Scoop the dough using a 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop and drop 3 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. They should lose their doughy shine on the top but will still be very soft.
  4. Immediately after they come out of the oven press the rest of the chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies.
  5. Allow to cook on the baking sheet for several minutes to allow the cookies to firm up before moving to a cooling rack.
