Brutti e Buoni: hazelnut cookies with coconut sugar!
Serves: 6
These cookies in Italy are called "brutti e buoni": Ugly and delicious. They are easy to make and can be kept out of the refrigerator for about a week.
  1. To make hazelnut flour just put about 4 cups of hazelnuts into a food processor and grind until a semi-fine texture is achieved. The texture of the cookies can vary from fine to coarse and chunky, it depends on personal preference.
  2. Let the butter soften at room temperature.
  3. Add all the ingredients to the food processor bowl and mix together until it starts forming a dough-like ball.
  4. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Scoop little balls of dough onto a table-spoon and place on the cookie sheet.
  7. the shape should not be too smooth, so they can turn out "ugly"!
  8. Bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Let cool before removing from parchment paper.
