Hazelnuts are the darling of the nut world (also known as filberts). Indulgent and decadent, hazelnuts have an earthy, toasted flavor with a sweet nutty aroma. We roast these nuts before blending, which greatly help remove the husky skins, and release some of the natural oils.
In addition to the natural oily nuts, we further boost this butter with the addition of a moderately intense extra virgin olive oil, adding pops of unctuously fruity notes. A little cinnamon and brown sugar are adding for a bit of sweetness.
