Choc Chip & Hazelnut Cookies
« on: October 10, 2012, 07:04:17 am »
Ingredients:

105g hazelnuts
100g milk chocolate* chunks (used milk cooking chocolate)
125g butter, chopped
225g self-raising flour
135g brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

Preheat oven to 180C (390F).

Add nuts to TM bowl and chop 2 Seconds / Speed 5. Remove and set aside. Add chocolate squares to TM and chop 5 Seconds / Speed 5. Remove and set aside with nuts.

Melt the butter in TM 2 minutes / 60 degrees / Speed 2. Set aside to cool slightly.

Place the flour and sugar in TM bowl and mix 5 Seconds / Speed 4.

Add the butter, egg and vanilla and mix 4 Seconds / Speed 3.

Stir through the hazelnuts and chocolate Reverse /15 Seconds / Speed 4

Using your hands, mould 1 1/2 tablespoons of cookie mixture into a flat round and place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper, leaving room to spread. Repeat with remaining mixture. Bake for 1012 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool on trays. Makes 18.

Notes:

To check if the cookies are done, look at the bottom not the top. If you wait until the top looks right you risk overcooking them. To check, lift a cookie with a spatula so you can see underneath. The bottom should be deep golden. Cool on trays as the cookies will continue to cook after you've removed them from the oven.

CP do you skin the hazelnuts before chopping them?  I like hazelnuts and I even picked up a packet for a short time whilst shopping last week, saw the skins and wished someone would put out packets of peeled hazelnuts.  I really dislike the job of removing the skins and have followed directions to do so and still can't get them all off.  :-))

I thought exactly the same thing, they have roasted and also blanched almonds so why don't they? It certainly makes a mess and very fiddly. No, the recipe didn't say to do it so I didn't either.

Just proves how hard it must be to do it perfectly then CP.  Thanks for that, makes it so much easier to do this recipe now.

CP what are you doing to me, these look tasty. I'm glad I'm not the only person who hates removing the Hazelnut skins

Reading the comments I now know that you can buy hazelnuts with the skin off nowadays.
These cookies would be delicious, can you stop yourself from eating too many cookie?

I must admit I had another today out on the car run.  I should be very good as Im due for my 6 monthly blood tests etc for my diabetes.
