Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325F.
Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl to blend.
Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar in large bowl until smooth.
Beat in 1/2 cup finely ground hazelnuts and vanilla. Beat in flour mixture until just combined.

Let stand until chocolate is set, about 1 hour.
