Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies
2 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Hazelnut Flour or Meal
1/2 Cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup White Sugar ( If you want to make this Sugar Free just use the Pyure Stevia in the same amounts as both sugars)
1 Cup All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour ( I used Better Batter)
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Large Eggs (Beaten)
8oz. Cream Cheese softened
1/2 Cup Salted Butter softened (1 Stick)
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla
1- 11.5 oz. package Hershey’s Gluten Free Milk Chocolate Chips ( if you want this sugar free then use 2 packages of the Sugar Free Chips)
Preheat oven to 350*F.
In large bowl whisk together all dry ingredients. Using electric mixer or food processor beat together eggs, cheese, butter and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix together until well blended, then fold in chocolate chips. You may want to cover bowl and let set in fridge for about 15 minutes, or you can go ahead and spoon onto greased cookie sheet, and flatten out to about ¼ inch thick. ( I wet my fingers to do this.) Bake for 16 to 18 minutes. We like ours just until they are crispy around the edges. Be aware these are a little rich, but that’s ok for Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
