RECIPE: Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Oatmeal Cookies 🍪 Any other fans of hazelnut + chocolate out there!? It’s one of our favorite combos for a sweet treat and these cookies are bursting with semisweet chocolate chips and crunchy hazelnuts. Bonus: They make the whole house smell fantastic! .
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
1 cup old fashioned oats .
Combine the butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg and vanilla extract and beat on medium-high speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Scrape the batter off the sides of the bowl and add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined, about 1 minute.
Add chocolate chips, hazelnuts and oatmeal and beat slowly to incorporate into batter or fold into the batter by hand.
Using a cookie scoop or small spoon, form mounds of dough (approximately 24) and place onto a large plate. Flatten dough slightly with your palm and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight) before baking.
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and place dough mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until edges have set and tops begin to set. The cookies will continue to firm as they cool, so please take care not to overbake.
Cool cookies on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to continue cooling.
Makes 2 dozen cookies. Recipe inspired by @averiesunshine
