  1. Preheat oven to 180 C.

  2. Place hazelnuts on baking sheet. Bake until they become a shade darker and give out their fragrance. This should take about 10 to 15 minutes, but keep an eye on your hazelnuts so that they don’t burn! Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  3. Lower oven temperature to 160 C.

  4. Place hazelnuts in blender or food processor and pulse to coarse bits. Set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt to blend.
  5. Beat butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until smooth. Beat in egg. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Add the chopped hazelnuts and mix well until distributed evenly throughout.
  6. Form into finger sized logs, using about1,5 to 2 tbsp dough for each and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake until firm, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on racks.

  7. Melt chocolate in a saucepan over lowest heat or in a double boiler. Dip 1 end of cooled cookies into melted chocolate. Place back on cookie sheet to harden.
