Cookies for Coffee

Tools Needed
Cookie sheet (Fat Daddio's CS)
Medium bowl
Egg beater/mixer
Silicone baking mat (Fat Daddio's SM)
Cutting board
 3/4 cup butter
 1 cup white sugar
 2 eggs
 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1 cup hazelnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt; mix into the egg mixture. Stir in the hazelnuts. 
  3. Shape dough into two equal logs approximately 12" long. Place logs on baking sheet, and flatten out to about 1/2 inch thickness.
  4. Bake for about 30 minute, or until edges are golden and the center is firm. 
  5. Remove from oven to cool on the pans. When loaves are cool enough to handle, remove from cookie sheet to cutting board. Use a serrated knife to slice the loaves diagonally into 1/2" thick slices. Return the slices to the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, turning over once. Cool completely, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
