Hazelnut-Espresso Cookies

Source: Everyday Food Fresh Flavor Fast, 2010


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 2 cups (about 10 ounces) hazelnuts, skins removed, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a meduim bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

  2. With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in espresso powder.

  3. With mixer on low speed, beat in flour mixture until incorporated. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, mix in hazelnuts.

  4. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto three baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake, first two sheets together, until golden, about 12 minutes, rotating sheets front to back and from top to bottom halfway through. Repeat with remaining sheet. Cool cookies on sheets 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve, or store in an airtight container up to 3 days.

    I made these last night and really enjoyed the flavor. Hazelnuts have such a wonderfully rich, nutty taste---and I dont think any other nut would suffice in this recipe! I used instant coffee from Starbucks, and it was fabulous. I under-cooked these to ensure a soft cookie.

    We made these for a Holiday cookie exchange, and they're amazing. We added mini chocolate chips as well, and it gave the perfect taste. Also, our grocery store didn't sell hazelnuts, so we used walnuts. They still came out wonderfully.

    I made these cookies last night, and although very delicious I think they could use some chocolate chips. I'm going to try them again sometime next week with the chocolate chips.

    i used almonds instead of hazelnuts because i had almonds at home. they turned out great. i also tried them with walnuts. i liked them with almonds better.
