Hazelnut Brownies
(3-10-2020)

These delicious sweet treats put a crunchy and nutty twist on the classic chocolate brownie recipe. With just a handful of easy ingredients and a super straightforward recipe, these hazelnut brownies will easily become your new go-to dessert.

You can serve these up at room temperature on their own, or if you're looking for something a bit more special, try heating them up in the microwave for about 30 seconds and serving them up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!

Ingredients
  • 1 box of 16 Ferrero Rocher chocolates
  • 250g pack salted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 250g golden caster sugar
  • 225g light muscovado sugar
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 85g ready-chopped hazelnuts
  • 4 tbsp Frangelico or Fratello hazelnut liqueur
Directions

Unwrap chocolates, place on tray and put in freezer. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Lightly grease and line base and sides of 21-22cm square tin with baking paper.

Put butter, sugars and cocoa into large saucepan and gently melt together, stirring regularly so mixture doesn't catch. Once sugar granules have just about disappeared, take off heat, tip into bowl. Leave to cool for 5 mins.

Use whisk or wooden spoon to beat eggs, one by one, into mixture. When they're completely incorporated and mixture is smooth and shiny, stir in flour, hazelnuts and liqueur. Tip mixture into prepared tin and bake for 35 mins.

Remove tin from oven and use cutlery knife to mark top of the brownies into 16 squares without cutting completely through. Use teaspoon to dent in center of each portion and add a frozen Ferrero Rocher chocolate into each dip. Return to oven for 3 mins, then remove and leave to cool completely. Once cool, cut into 16 squares and serve.

Hazelnut Rainwater Madeira Tiramisu
(1-6-2020)

Enjoy the natural nuttiness in the Madeira coupled with the lush sweetness of the hazelnut liquor makes for a flavor-balanced pairing.

Ingredients
  • zabaglione
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 8 tablespoons cane juice sugar
  • 1/3 cup Rainwater Madeira wine

  • tiramisu, cream and assembly
  • 20-30 lady fingers
  • 2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 11½ cups hot strong coffee or espresso
  • 2 tablespoons hazelnut liquor
  • 11½ tablespoons cane juice sugar
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1 tablespoon cane juice sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • hazelnuts and chocolate shavings to decorate
Directions

Zabaglione: Place a pot with about an inch of water in it (or use a double boiler) on the stove over medium low heat. Place your bowl over your pot and cook the egg mixture over low heat, stirring constantly for 8 minutes. Using a rubber spatula and moving the thickness of the mixture from the bottom and sides, you will notice that at the 5 minute mark it will instantly change texture, going from a thin liquid to a much thicker custard that is suddenly slightly smaller in quantity. At 7 minutes you can turn off the heat and stir for a few more strokes. Let this mixture cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight, until thoroughly chilled.

Light whipped cream: Beat the light cream with 1 tablespoon of sugar until foamy and blended. Fold in the light cream into your mascarpone; the mixture should be smooth and light.

In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone cream filling with the chilled zabaglione, blending until just combined.

Mix together the hot espresso with sugar and hazelnut liquor in a wide, shallow dish.

Line an 8?x8? pan with saran wrap, getting the plastic squarely into the corners so your tiramisu can layer evenly. Saran lining makes it easier to take the tiramisu out and cut and serve individual servings. If you don't care about serving them individually feel free to skip over this step.

Working quickly, dip the ladyfingers one at a time into your warm coffee. Nota bene- The key here is to dip them long enough to get them moistened but not so long as to get them soaked where they start disintegrating. If the coffee is hot or warm, this shouldn't take long. Depending on the thickness of your ladyfingers, you should start getting a feel for how long you need to soak yours. Soak the bottom layer for 3-4 seconds so that the mascarpone sticks to the fingers, but still take care to avoid disintegrating them. Soak the in-between layers for 1-3 seconds so they can retain a spongy instead of soggy texture in your assembled tiramisu. (If you've tasted a soggy tiramisu, you'll be familiar with the taste of mush and alcohol, which is what we're trying to avoid here.)

Immediately start placing each ladyfinger side by side in a single row in your pan. You can also break a lady finger into pieces when necessary, to ensure the base of your dish is completely covered. Once your fingers are moistened, it will be easier to squeeze in 1 more than might fit if they were placed dry into the bottom layer.

Spoon one-third of the cream mixture on top of the ladyfingers, then use a rubber spatula or frosting knife to spread the filling evenly, all the way to the edges.

Repeat to create 2 more layers, ending with the mascarpone filling. In the 2nd and 3rd layers of ladyfingers, space them out further from one another. When you cut into a square piece, you'll see lovely diagonal layers of mascarpone. That comes from spacing the fingers out, which also keeps the tiramisu from becoming ladyfinger heavy....unless you like that!

Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate the tiramisu overnight. If you assemble your tiramisu in the morning, it will be ready to serve the same evening (just let it come to room temperature for about 10 minutes before serving it so the flavors open up.) You can also freeze it to serve much later. I also find that cutting it when it's still slightly frozen produces cleaner cuts. Decorate with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, and hazelnuts.

Salted Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies
(12-8-19)

They are sure to become a new favorite to enjoy with a cup of tea or to take along for a seasonal picnic with friends.

Ingredients
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped roasted hazelnuts
  • 2 (3-ounce) bars Moonstruck Dark Chocolate 68% Cacao, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Jacobsen Pure Flake Finishing Salt
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Add the sugars and butter to the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low and then increase to medium-high. Mix for about two minutes until pale yellow in color and smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

Add the vanilla and then mix in the egg. Mix in the baking soda and salt. Next add the flour and mix on medium until a cookie dough forms, about 1 minute. Add the hazelnuts and then add the chocolate and mix on low for about 20 seconds to combine all ingredients.

Transfer the cookies in generous tablespoon portions to the baking sheets with no more than 12 cookies per tray. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with flaked sea salt. Bake each tray for about 10 minutes, until the cookies begin to brown at the edges and are firm in the center.

Let cool for 3 minutes on the tray and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Holmquist Raspberry and Hazelnut Ricotta Cake
(8-5-19)

Yield: 6 - 8
Time: 70 minutes

This simple cake makes a winning dessert for a special dinner and it is sure to please guests at your next brunch. Ricotta cheese creates a dense, tender cake while crunchy hazelnuts and sweet raspberries add a balanced touch of seasonal flavors and textures.

Ingredients
  • ¾ cup raw hazelnuts
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, divided
  • Whipped cream for garnish, optional
  • Chopped roasted hazelnuts for garnish
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of an 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper. Spray inside of the pan, including the parchment, with non-stick cooking spray.

Place ¼ cup of the hazelnuts in a small food processor or spice grinder and pulse until they resemble a fine meal. Crack or half part of the remaining hazelnuts and set aside the cracked and whole nuts.

Add the hazelnut meal and the flour to a large bowl. Stir in the sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, ricotta, and vanilla. Fold this into the dry ingredients until a smooth batter forms.

Reserve half of the raspberries. Stir the remaining berries into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Top with the reserved raspberries and the reserved whole and halved hazelnuts.

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. If the hazelnuts look like they are browning too quickly, place a tented piece of aluminum foil over the cake while it continues to bake.

Let the cake cool for 20 minutes. Carefully invert the pan over a plate to release the cake. Flip the cake back over so that the raspberries and hazelnuts are on top. Slice and garnish with whipped cream, if desired, and more chopped hazelnuts before serving.

Café Latte Brownies with Hazelnuts
(6-7-19)

Yield: 9 large brownies or 16 small brownies
Time: 45 minutes

These brownies are made rich and decadent with the addition of milk chocolate and finely ground coffee beans. Hazelnuts add a pleasant roasted, nutty flavor with a crunchy bite. The simple frosting adds a creamy note to bring the dessert together for an unforgettable treat!

Ingredients
Brownies:
  • ¾ cup raw hazelnuts
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons Stumptown Coffee Roasters House Blend coffee beans, ground to a fine powder
  • 1 ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


Frosting:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk (any variety)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • ¼ cup roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut a piece of parchment paper so that it lines the bottom and two sides of an 8-by-8-inch baking pan. The paper should extend beyond the two sides to allow for lifting the brownies out of the pan once cooled. Spray the paper and the inside of the pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Halve some of the raw hazelnuts with a knife so that have you a mix of whole and halved nuts. Set aside.

Add the butter and baking chocolate to a small saucepan. Turn the burner to medium heat and warm, stirring often, until the butter and chocolate are melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the finely ground coffee beans.

Place the sugar in a large bowl. Stir in the melted coffee-infused chocolate and butter from the saucepan until smooth. Add the vanilla and then stir in the eggs. Mix in the salt and then fold in the flour until all ingredients are combined into a thick brownie batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Top the batter with chocolate chips and then with the hazelnuts. Gently press them into the batter.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes.

While the brownies cool, make the frosting. Add the butter and powdered sugar to a stand mixer fitted with the paddle or whisk attachment. Turn to low and then increase to medium high to blend the ingredients into a crumbly powder. Add the milk and vanilla, mix on high for about 1 minute, until the frosting is light and creamy. Mix in the salt.

Use the parchment to lift the brownies out of the pan. Remove the parchment and place them on a serving plate. Frost the brownies and then sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts. Slice into 9 or 16 squares for serving.

Chocolate-Hazelnut Crepes with Bourbon Whipped Cream
(2-16-18)

Ingredients

Bourbon whipped cream
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon bourbon, or more

Rose petals and blood orange
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • Petals of one rose blossom, picked
  • ¼ teaspoon rose blossom water (optional)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 6 leaves mint, torn

Crepes
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup orange liqueur, preferably Grand Marnier
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus extra butter for cooking the crepes
  • 1 jar chocolate-hazelnut spread, preferably Nutella
  • ½ cup toasted hazelnuts, crushed

Directions

For the bourbon whipped cream:
  1. In a chilled mixing bowl whisk together the heavy whipping cream and granulated sugar until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes.
  2. Gently whisk in the bourbon and continue whisking until the peaks firm up a bit more.
  3. Reserve in the cooler until ready to serve.

For the rose petals and blood orange:
  1. In a small pot, bring the sugar and water to a boil then remove it from the heat and let it cool until just warm.
  2. Stir the rose petals, rose blossom water and pinch of sea salt into the warm simple syrup.
  3. Using a sharp paring knife, cut the peel off of the blood oranges and then slice them crosswise into ½-inch thick coins. Pick out any seeds if necessary.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, coat the blood orange slices with the rose petal syrup, and fold in some of the candied rose petals and the torn mint, let it all marinate together until ready to serve.

For the crepes:
  1. In a bowl, or blender, whip together all of the crepe batter ingredients until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Set a 10-inch nonstick pan over a medium-high heat. Add a pat of butter to the pan and swirl it around until it coats the interior.
  3. Pour about 4 ounces of crepe batter into the pan and swirl it around quickly to coat as much of the pan as possible before it begins to cook. Allow the crepe to cook for about 1 minute, then use a rubber spatula to free it from the pan.
  4. If feeling bold, try to flip the crepe by tossing it into the air and catching it on the opposite side. If not so bold, go directly to placing a heaping spoon of Nutella into the center of the crepe followed by a sprinkle of toasted hazelnut pieces.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and allow the Nutella to warm for another minute, gently fold the crepe in half and press down with the spatula to spread out the Nutella inside the thin crepe.
  6. Slide the warmed crepe onto a plate and top it with the rose petals, blood oranges and bourbon whipped cream.


Roasted Hazelnut Toffee
(2-6-18)

Yield: Makes 4-1/4 pounds of toffee (100 pieces measuring 1 x 2 inches)

Ingredients
  • 1 pound (4 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed golden brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2-½ cups raw hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • (either chips, or squares that have been broken into chunks)
  • 2 cups chopped dark-roasted and skinned hazelnuts
Directions
Grease one large (12 x 17- inch) rimmed baking sheet or two smaller (10 x 15-inch or less) ones with butter.

Melt the pound of butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat on a wide-diameter burner. While the butter is melting, combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar and corn syrup. Add this mixture to the melted butter, along with the water. When the sugars have dissolved, increase the burner setting to medium high, stirring with a flat-edged wooden spoon. Attach a candy thermometer to the pot and cook the mixture, stirring constantly to keep it from scorching. When the temperature reaches 240 degrees F, add the nuts and continue stirring. At 260 degrees, reduce the burner setting to medium-low and continue cooking and stirring occasionally, until the toffee reaches 300 degrees ("hard crack").

Remove the pot from the burner and stir in the vanilla and salt, stirring quickly because the toffee will become quite thick at this point. Scrape it out onto the prepared baking sheet(s) or marble slab, spreading it out to a thickness of about ¼ to ½ inch. A silicon spatula is the best tool for spreading the sticky toffee.

Allow the toffee about 5 minutes to set up, then distribute the chocolate pieces evenly over the surface. The heat from the toffee will melt them. While it's still soft, gently even out the layer of chocolate and then sprinkle it with the roasted and chopped hazelnuts.

At this point, you can refrigerate the toffee until it is cold and hard. Or you can just let it cool to room temperature over several hours or overnight. Once the toffee is very firm, it can be broken into smaller, irregular-sized pieces.

NOTE: If you use unsalted butter, increase the amount of salt in the recipe from ¼ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon.

  • 10 tablespoons (1¼ sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 5 tablespoons frozen lard or solid vegetable shortening, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons (or more) ice water

Filling
  • 3½ pounds Granny Smith apples (about 6 large), peeled, cored, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices (about 6 cups)
  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon (scant) ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons (¼ stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • Milk
  • Vanilla ice cream
Directions

For crust:
Blend flour and hazelnuts in processor until nuts are finely ground. Add brown sugar and salt; blend 20 seconds. Add butter and lard; using on/off turns, process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Transfer mixture to bowl. Add 4 tablespoons ice water; stir until moist clumps form, adding more ice water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry. Gather dough together; divide into 2 equal pieces. Form each into ball; flatten each into disk. Wrap each in plastic wrap and chill 1 hour.

For filling:
Position rack in bottom third of oven and preheat to 400°F. Toss apples, ½ cup sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in large bowl. Roll out 1 dough disk on generously floured surface to 12-inch round, rotating crust often to prevent sticking. Generously flour 11 or 12 inch tart pan bottom. Slide tart pan bottom under dough round. Carefully slide dough round into 9-inch pie dish. Press crust onto bottom and up sides of dish; pinch and press to seal any cracks. Spoon filling into crust; drizzle with melted butter.

Roll out second dough disk on generously floured surface to 13-inch round. Slide same floured tart pan bottom under dough round. Carefully allow dough round to slide off tart pan bottom onto pie filling; pinch to seal any cracks in crust. Press top crust and bottom crust together at edge. Fold edge under; crimp decoratively. Cut X in center of top crust. Brush top crust lightly with milk. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Transfer pie to rimmed baking sheet. Bake pie 30 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Bake pie 25 minutes. Cover crust edges with foil collar to prevent overbrowning; continue baking until crust is golden, apples are tender, and juices are bubbling thickly in center, about 20 minutes longer. Transfer pie to rack and cool. Serve with ice cream.
