  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup hazelnut meal I used Bob's Red Mill*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted, plus 1-2 cups more for rolling
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together the flour, hazelnut meal, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and powdered sugar on medium speed with a hand mixer until incorporated, then increase the speed to medium high and beat until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes more. Add the egg and mix on low speed until incorporated. Add the dry ingredients and beat on low speed just until combined. The dough will be crumbly. Add the mini chocolate chips and knead the dough together with your hands while combining it with the chips.
  • Roll the dough into 1" balls and place on the prepared baking sheet 1" apart. Bake 20 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking, or until they're light golden brown. Cool for about 10 minutes and roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely and roll in more powdered sugar if desired.
  • Store cookies in an air tight container at room temperature for 2 weeks.


  • Cook time reflects baking 1 sheet of cookies at a time. I like to bake one at a time on the middle rack of the oven for best results.
  • If you'd rather make these cookies nut free, you can simply substitute the hazelnut meal for one more cup of flour (3 cups flour total).
  • No hazelnut meal? Pulse some hazelnuts in the food processor until coarsely ground. Be careful...you don't want nut butter! You may also substitute with almond flour/meal.
