2 medium eggs.
1 ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract.
2 ½ cup of all-purpose flour.
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
¾ teaspoon of baking powder.
½ teaspoon of salt.
1 cup of hazelnuts.

Method:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Grease a cookie sheet or line sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract; then mix until smooth.

Sift together the flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder and salt; then stir into the egg mixture.
