Servings 24 Cookies


  • 1 cup Hazelnuts, Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Salted butter Softened
  • 1/2 cup Light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract, pure
  • 1 large Egg
  • 4 ounces Chocolate Chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • Expresso Brava Sea Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • If your hazelnuts have skins, toast them in a skillet over medium heat, shaking gently. The skins will slip off. Let cool before processing.
  • Pulse nuts in a food processor until nuts are about pea-sized.
  • Cream together salted butter and sugar until fluffy, then mix in vanilla and egg. Finally, stir in flour and hazelnuts.
  • Scoop dough out by the tablespoon onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Gently press down slightly on each cookie.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate and unsalted butter together in a small saucepan or a microwave, whisking to combine thoroughly.
  • Top each cookie with a spoonful of chocolate. Sprinkle with a pinch of Espresso Brava Sea Salt.
  • Let cookies cool, and if desired, put them in the refrigerator to firm up the chocolate. Store in a covered container.
