Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies from Flour

Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies from Flour

Source: Flour

Crispy and delicious cookies. I like the pairing of milk chocolate and the hazelnut—reminds me of nutella ☺ These cookies do brown and spread. Nice crispy cookie with contrasting bits inside. Also I neglected to grind half the hazelnuts, and ended up just adding all of them in (and also forgot to chop them). They still turned out fine with whole hazelnuts. Also I made half of the original recipe.

Makes about: 27 cookies, tablespoons
Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 15 mins/batch

Ingredients

6.5 tbsp butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
¼ tsp vanilla
¾ cup blanched toasted whole hazelnuts (I used roasted hazelnuts that still had skins)
¾ cup flour
½ tsp baking soda
3/8 tsp salt
6 oz milk chocolate

Special equipment
Something to grind the hazelnuts

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cream together butter and sugars till fluffy.
3. Add egg and vanilla.
4. Grind half the hazelnuts and chop the other half. Add in to egg mixture. Alternately, if you skip this step, the cookies will still be fine.
5. Blend in flour, baking soda, and salt.
6. Mix in milk chocolate.
7. Let dough rest for a few hours (or, you can bake right away).
8. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Greek Yogurt

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Greek Yogurt
Source: Eat Live Run

Makes about: 55 cookies, 1 tbsp scoop
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 12 minutes

Whew! The name is a mouthful…and a list of nearly everything in the cookie. These cookies are crispy on the outside and slightly moist on the inside. There’s a nice crunch to them from the oats and from the crunch peanut butter. While delicious, they aren’t really as healthy as they might seem (butter! sugar!) Also, it’s important to use dark brown sugar to get the nice golden tint, since most cookies with less eggs/fat don’t brown as well.

Ingredients
1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup rolled oats
½ tsp cinnamon
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup butter, room temp
1/3 cup greek yogurt
½ cup peanut butter (I used crunchy)
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Beat together butter, peanut butter and egg.
3. Add sugar.
4. Add salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla extract, cinnamon.
5. Add in oats.
6. Add in flour.
7. Add in chocolate chips.
8. Scoop by tablespoons onto prepared pan (they don’t spread that much, FYI).
9. Bake 12 minutes. Enjoy!

These cookies are fairly pale, and I didn’t quite understand why I needed to add milk at all. Anyways, they turned out to slightly more cake/scone-like than crispy-cookie like and very very pale looking. Not sure I’d use this recipe again.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 10-12 minutes


Ingredients

4 tbsp butter
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 egg

1 cup rolled oats
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup milk
¼ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare baking pan.
2. Cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
3. Mix in egg and milk.
4. Mix in flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and vanilla.
5. Mix in chocolate chips
6. Scoop onto prepared pan. Cookies don’t really spread, but still leave some room.
7. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cookies will still be fairly pale.

The salt adds a nice touch to these chocolate-chip cookies and really enhances the brown sugar-buttery flavor of the cookies. Of course, salt enhances flavor of most food, so that’s not too surprising 🙂 I scoop the dough into balls and freeze them. Once I bake them from the freezer, they require a little more time in the oven (about 15 minutes).

Makes About: 30 cookies, 1.5 tbsp scoop
Prep Time:
Bake Time: 10-15 minutes/batch (depending on how brown you like them)

Ingredients
½ cup salted butter, at room temperature (I used ½ cup unsalted butter+ ¼ tsp salt)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/3 cups coarsely chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate (I used chocolate chips)
1 cup toasted nuts, coarsely chopped

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
2. Cream together butter and sugar.
3. Mix in egg and vanilla.
4. Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt.
5. Mix in chocolate chips and nuts.
6. If the dough is too soft, chill for about 30 minutes. Otherwise, proceed.
7. Scoop dough by tablespoons or with a scoop of choice (I’ve just started using this: http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Grips-Medium-Cookie-Scoop/dp/B0000CDVD2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376682941&sr=8-1&keywords=oxo+scoop+medium)
8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown.
