How to Make Northwest Hazelnut Crinkle Cookies


  • 1Combine the dry ingredients : flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  • 2In another bowl, beat the Nutella, butter, and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes with an electric beater.

    Add the eggs, vanilla, coffee and mix until incorporated.
  • 3Reduce the speed to low and alternate additions of flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with the flour, and mixing until just combined after each addition.
  • 4Fold in ½ cup of the chopped hazelnuts. Refrigerate the dough until firm, at least 2-4 hours. 8 hours worked best for me.
  • 5Preheat oven to 160 C (320 f). Line your baking trays with baking paper.
  • 6Place the remaining hazelnuts and the powdered sugar in two separate bowls.

    Take about a tablespoon of the mixture and roll the dough into balls, roll in the hazelnuts, then roll in the powdered sugar.
  • 7Place the balls 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake until the edges are set and the middle still looks a little soft, about 13-15 minutes.
  • 8Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Just before serving, to jazz them up, drizzle with some melted Nutella.
