Hazelnut cookies, to me, evoke memories of my grandmother. These delightful treats are incredibly simple to make, yet they boast a remarkable flavor profile. What's intriguing about these cookies is their versatility. For a delectable twist, consider incorporating chopped dark chocolate directly into the dough before baking.
Considered as drop cookies, these treats can be crafted using various nuts, with walnuts being a particularly excellent alternative if hazelnuts (also known as filberts) are not readily available.
For those in the United States, I'm not sponsored, but I highly recommend checking out Trader Joe's for your nut selection—they offer a fantastic array that could elevate these cookies to another level.
