These chewy cookies have plenty of chocolate flavor -- they will remind you of brownies. If you don't have hazelnuts, try these cookies with other chopped nuts.


  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 1 egg (unbeaten)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 squares chocolate (semisweet, melted)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (stir before measuring)
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts (chopped, more if desired)

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

  2. In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer cream butter until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in salt and sugar. Add egg; beat well. Blend in vanilla and chocolate.

  3. Mix in flour until blended. Fold in the chopped hazelnuts.

  4. Drop level tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto the greased cookie sheets.

  5. Stamp lightly with a flat bottom glass covered with a damp cloth.

  6. If desired sprinkle more finely chopped hazelnuts over the top of each cookie.

  7. Bake for about 15 minutes, until set.
