if you want to make your own gianduja here it is

Yields : 18 cookies

Here's what we need :

Here's what we do :

Preheat your oven at 350°F.

Line 2 baking trays with parchment.

In a stand mixer, beat the sugar, butter, hazelnuts oil & salt on medium speed until light & fluffy.

Add the egg, gianduja, caramel & vanilla extract & mix on low speed for 30 seconds (just to combine) then beat on medium speed for another 30 seconds.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder & baking soda & add to the mixture.

Mix on low speed for 30 seconds then mix on medium-low speed for another 30 seconds to mix the dough uniformly.

Gently roll the dough into balls (about 1 heaping tablespoon).

Arrange at least 2 1/4 inches apart on the prepared baking trays.

Bake until the edges are golden  & the tops are cracked but not completely set, about 13 to 15 minutes.
