Once I got back to Boston, I finally caught up on all the personal admin I had been neglecting during my last few weeks of working. I did piles laundry, opened mail, and finally finished unpacking from Burning Man. (Yes, I know that was months ago)
While surveying my dry goods shelf for
Beach House – Wild
Buttery Hazelnut Cookies
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
½ cup sugar
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup roasted hazelnut meal
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add flour, hazelnut meal, and salt and beat until dough forms.
Using a small cookie scoop, roll dough into 1-inch balls and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets.
Press balls with a fork to flatten. Bake until edges are golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
