White Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies

This is a cookie you will want to make again and again. I like to take it to church get-togethers and family reunions. It's very delicious...crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. -Denise DeJong, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups whole hazelnuts, toasted, divided
  • 9 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white baking chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Coarsely chop 1/2 cup hazelnuts; set aside. Melt 2 tablespoons butter. In a food processor, combine melted butter and remaining hazelnuts. Cover and process until the mixture forms a crumbly paste; set aside.
  • In a bowl, cream the remaining butter. Beat in the sugars. Add egg and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in ground hazelnut mixture until blended. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to batter and mix just until combined. Stir in chips and reserved chopped hazelnuts.
