40 Recipes : Hazelnut Butter Cookies

Recipe Source:  St. Joseph Junior League Cookbook
Made : May 31, 2013

2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup butter
1 cup finely chopped toasted hazelnuts
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

2.  Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.  Add butter and cut in until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Add chopped nuts, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla, and mix until smooth dough forms.
3.  Shape into 1 inch balls.  Place on a cookie sheet and press with back of fort in a crisscross pattern to form 1/4 inch thick cookies.  
4.  Bake cookies until a pale golden brown, about 15 minutes.  
5.  Cool and roll cookies in powdered sugar.

Thoughts:  Really good.  Very similar to a holiday cookie we make.

Make again? Absolutely.  We've already made them again.
