    The hazelnut flour goes for 20.00 /lb and the almond flour goes for 15.00 / lb. How can people afford to spend entire grocery budget on cookies?

    I do it the European way ;) buy it once and use it as a special occasional treat. Not for everyday consumption!

    In Britain, almond flour and ground almonds are virtually the same but the latter is so much cheaper. Hazelnut flour I have never heard of so won't be making these. Probably far too expensive. Al sounds very American.

    1 cup hazelnut flour doesn't equal 1 pound hazelnut flour or doesn't cost $20. Same goes for almond flour, 1 cup is not 1 pound. Get real. Besides, nobody is forcing you to use these ingredients and bake those cookies.

    Regarding the hazelnut flour, you could just buy 110g raw bulk hazelnuts and grind them up. When you buy flours and meals already ground up and packaged, it’s of course way more expensive. But it doesn’t take much effort to grind up your own. These cookies sound delicious, and I’ll be making them. Thank you for the recipe!

    Wonderful flavour in these cookies.
    Ground up hazelnuts in a blender or coffee grinder. Super easy!!

    Great recipe!

    Blanched or Unblanched Hazelnut flour? Also I keep running into hazelnut meal which normally would indicate some sort of gluten or other flour but ingredients state 100% hazelnut. This is confusing :)

    We do not use any sweetener in our main meal recipes; only in the desserts. You may be able to find sweetener online, depending on your location.

    If I can't get hazelnuts can I just use the almond flour but double the amount?
    Anyone made these without the hazelnut flour?

    The recipe has not been tested with all almond flour rather than hazelnut flour. Let us know how it goes if you try it.

    How fine should the hazelnut flour be? The picture looks as though the cookies use either a coarse grind or enough a "meal" texture. A couple online converters say 4 cups of hazelnuts makes 1 cup hazelnut flour.

    Most commercial hazelnut flour is slightly coarser ground than almond flour.

    Almond meal and almond flour are both made from ground almonds with almond flour being a finer grind.

    Make the greatest rhumballs with this dough! Add rum flavour or rum, (arrak if you are swedish) maybe a little more almond flour if dough feels wet. Shape into 1” balls, dust with cocoa, refrigerate and voilá! Hey, last time I made them I put a whole toasted hazelnut in the middle. It’s like a truffle, dangerously irresistible!
    A MUST TRY! Great for Christmas.

    Used "brown sugar Swerve" (basically erithrytol), but cut it back to less than 1/4 cup (just over 3 Tablespoons) and used dry roasted hazelnuts for the top. Very good! Not too sweet, which is a problem I have with a lot of keto dessert or baking recipes.

    These cookies were delicious and so easy to make. I ground hazelnuts in a high-speed blender (Vita-Mix) to make my own hazelnut flour. It only took 12-14 seconds on high. Any longer and I would’ve had hazelnut butter. I’ll be making these again during the holidays. A nice treat! Thanks for the recipe.
