Liven up your morning oatmeal with this sweet-tart compote made from fresh cranberries, orange, and hazelnuts.
This torte is a classically dense, rich dessert. Hazelnuts rounds out this cake with a wonderfully toasty flavor, while a healthy dose of vanilla provides a gently sweet aroma to balance out all that dark chocolate. Plus, it's pretty tough to screw up this cake—baking novices, give it a try.
In 1995, a group of British historians found a 9,000 year old nut processing pit on the island of Colonsay in Scotland. The nut of choice? Hazelnuts. Just a few years ago an even older house was found near Northumberland in England. What was scattered all over the floor? Roasted hazelnuts.
One of the advantages of running your own restaurant is that premium ingredients are just a phone call away. But when I placed orders for my bakery, Desserticus, I routinely lost all self control.

This habit usually put a big hurtin' on my wallet. (I guess some girls like shoes. I like butter).
If Nutella and gianduja are the way to your heart, these Chocolate-Glazed Chocolate-Hazelnut Cookies are going to be the highlight of your holiday cookie baking season. Elegant and crisp, glazed with a thin, shiny coating of bittersweet chocolate, these cookies incorporate hazelnuts, chocolate, and just a hint of espresso. They're the perfect companion for a steaming cup of cocoa or coffee.
