  2. Beat in the flour until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts by hand. Scoop dough by large tabelspoons and form into balls.

I'm a 22-year-old Midwesterner and the voice behind the blog Espresso and Cream ( During the day, I'm a food editor at Meredith Corporation and do on-camera work when opportunities come my way. It goes without saying that I love to cook and bake, and am happiest when I'm in the kitchen. I'm a exercise junkie, recently-converted vegetarian to the chagrin of my boyfriend, magazine fanatic, and an animal lover who desperately wants to buy a puppy, if only I could solve the white couch dilemma. I don't like pretentious, fussy, or complicated food. The recipes you find here reflect how I like to eat. Simple food made with quality ingredients, and bit of creative flair thrown in for variety. My recipes are easy to prepare, delicious, and mostly healthy - minus the desserts. Those are just easy and delicious.

I made these two days ago for my work and everyone LOVED them! I got multiple requests for the recipe. The only adaptations that I made were I omitted the chocolate chips and hazelnuts and instead rolled the balls of dough in granulated sugar, flattened them with my hand, and then baked them. This is my new go-to cookie recipe!
