Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

What better way to spend your snow day than baking cookies!? And while today is technically Pi(e) Day, I’ve always enjoyed cookies more.

Lately, I’ve been eating in A LOT more than usual and also posting less and that’s because we got a puppy! His name is Fozzie and he’s the sweetest Bichon Poo ever. And at only 2 and a half weeks young, he is definitely quite the time suck! And so having him home on my snow day (read: work from home day) made it all the more fun.

Back to the main reason for today’s post, these gorgeous cookies. If Ferrero Rocher chocolates and Mrs. Fields cookies had a baby, it would be this cookie. Crispy golden edges with a moist chewy center, I’ve died and gone to cookie heaven.

I have some leftover hazelnut flour from the Hazelnut Biscotti that I’ve been meaning to use up and decided to do so with this recipe.

The best part? They’re super quick! Between measuring, combing, chilling and, only 30 minutes away from the cookies of your dreams.
