    Laura,

    These are delicious cookies! And they do remind me of Nutella, which I love. I ended up toasting the hazelnuts and then rubbing off most of the skins. I ground them 1 cup at a time in the...

    Our local fancy market doesn't carry the Bob's Red Mill hazelnut meal, so I have a pound of nuts to roast and grind. These cookies are on my list for this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes!

    Thanks, Laura. I wanted a general cookie number idea to see if a 1/2 recipe would be a good starting place for our family--and it will. I may try grinding the nuts myself. It only takes about a...

    These look and sound great! How many does the recipe make? Did you grind hazelnuts to meal yourself or buy already ground? Thanks.

    Hi Peachesncream,

    I did use ghee, which I got in a small jar from Trader Joe's. It is clarified butter. I think olive oil would work well, too.
