Make Crispy OR Chewy Nutella Cookies!

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped hazelnuts aka filberts
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Whisk the dry ingredients together then add to the butter mixture, mixing together thoroughly.
  • Mix in the hazelnuts and chocolate chips by hand until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, (think ice cream scoop size!) fill the scoop until it's full, flattening the bottom until it's level with the straight edge of the scoop.
  • Place by rounded cookie scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are cooked and set, and the center isn't raw. See notes.

  • Leave the cookies on the trays to cool completely.
  • Store in a closed container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

    Don’t know if they are supposed to come out flat, but mine did, I did underbake them because they spreaded out on cookie sheet, but I felt something was amissed with ingredients, not enough flour or maybe add baking powder, but they came out so flat, taste could of been more chocolate so next time maybe I would add more chips3 stars

    These cookies are delicious. I bake all of my desserts in my Breville toaster oven. I used a slightly smaller scoop than recommended and they were the perfect size. I baked the first batch for 10 minutes and they burned, the next batch for 9 minutes and the bottoms were still dark, close to burned. The last few were baked for 8 minutes and they were soft & chewy. Just right. I’m thinking of trying them at 350º next time. Any thoughts?

    These cookies sound amazing but what if you don’t have a mixer that has a paddle?
