Hazelnuts aren't a casual addition to these rich chocolate chip cookies - they are big and bossy and aromatic, lending texture to the dough and a chunky crunch to an otherwise soft mouthful. I should warn you that the baked cookies will need to sit for 5 minutes on the baking tray before they'll move to a cooling rack without falling apart. It would be a terrible shame to find your fingers covered in a hot, sweet, nutty, chocolatey goo . . .
