Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time:
1 hr 15 min
30 min
45 min

4 dozen

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces English toffee candy (recommended: Heath or Skor bar), finely chopped
  • 1 cup hazelnuts, toasted, husked, and chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with parchment paper. Finely chop the oats in a food processor. Transfer the oats to a medium bowl. Mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir just until blended. Stir in the toffee, hazelnuts, and chocolate chips.

For each cookie, drop 1 rounded tablespoonful of dough onto sheet, spacing 1-inch apart (do not flatten dough). Bake until the cookies are golden (cookies will flatten slightly), about 15 minutes. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely. (The cookies can be prepared 1 day ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.)

I bake often, and my husband said these cookies were "Perfect", which means a lot coming from him. I could not find hazelnut in my store, so I substituted walnuts. I will be keeping this recipe for sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
whoa these are good! only changes: used 10 oz. bag of bittersweet (60% cocoa) chocolate chips and my store sells heath toffee bits in the baking aisle (used the kind with no chocolate). 15 minutes exactly--they don't look done but they are item not reviewed by moderator and published
My wife loves these cookies, I did not have Hazel nuts so I substituted a fairly large Jalapeno pepper. It sounds odd but the hint of hot pepper was nice, and the heat was neutralized. This recipe makes delicious cookies they are good warm or cooled. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are my husband favorite cookies! Since there's a candy bar in recipe I cut back on both sugars to 1/2 cup each & I added 1 more tea of vanilla. I flatten down the dough a little before baking & only baked for 9 minutes. One of our local stores sells this cookies for $7.99 a doz. Great recipe item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe and came out perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed recipe exactly except only used 1/2 cup of white sugar, because of a couple of reviews that mentioned the cookies being to sweet. Instead of cutting back on the sugar, I should have just made the cookies smaller if I was afraid they might be to sweet because the cookies turned out perfectly, but they needed that 1/2 cup of sugar. The texture of the cookie and the amount of cook time was perfect. I took them out at exactly 15 minutes, even though they didn't look done. I'm not a big fan of hazelnuts so next time I going to use pecans instead while including 1 cup of white sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Every year I get, "So, you're making those cookies, right?!" item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great cookies. I just made them with my 4y.o. son. Super easy. I skipped the hazelnuts, my husband doesn't care for nuts. Follow the recipe and bake them for 15-18 min and the cookies will be perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading all of the great reviews, I was anxious to try this recipe. What a huge disappointment -- these cookies are overly sweet. They baked to a point of being almost crispy throughout with very little of that soft, chewiness that I think makes for a good chocolate chip cookie. My nine-year-old son thought they were great, but if allowed, I think he would eat sugar straight from the bag. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fabulous recipe! Have made it time and time again. This recipe never disappoints. The cookies always disappear! item not reviewed by moderator and published
