These rich, chewy cookies are so easy to make with only five ingredients. The cookies have a deep, molasses flavor. These Easy Hazelnut Cookies are dairy-free and gluten-free, with optional decoration instructions. Skip, or substitute, the decorative topping if making these for Passover.
Makes 14 cookies
Prepare a cookie sheet or sheet pan with Gefen Parchment Paper. Do not grease the pan or the paper. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place all cookie ingredients into a medium mixing bowl. Combine using a hand mixer on low speed until the ingredients combine, then increase to medium speed for two minutes to fully smooth out the dough. Ignore or drain off excess oil.
Use a two tablespoon scoop to place dough balls one inch apart on the prepared pan. Then use a fork to gently flatten the dough balls.
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Then immediately remove the cookies from the pan onto a cooling rack.
Melt the candy melts using a double boiler method. Place a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water. Make sure the bowl is big enough not to sink into the water.
Dip the cooled cookies halfway into the melted candy coating. Place back onto a cooling rack. Sprinkle with hazelnuts and strawberries. Place the cookies into the refrigerator for five to 10 minutes to set up.
If making these for Passover, instead of the candy melts you can dip in melted white chocolate.
Place a clean sheet pan under the cooling rack to catch any drips from the candy melts.
