- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 11/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup roasted hazelnut meal
- Coarse salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add flour, hazelnut meal, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; beat until dough forms.
Roll dough into twenty-five 1-inch balls, and transfer to baking sheets. Press balls with a fork to flatten. Bake until edges are golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool on sheets set on wire racks.
Cookie dough can be refrigerated for up to 1 day or frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw before using.
