Line rimless baking sheet with parchment paper. Trace three 4-inch (10 cm) circles on parchment; turn paper over. Set aside.

In bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg white and vanilla. Stir in flour. Drop by level 1 tbsp (15 mL) onto centre of each circle; spread with offset spatula to fill circle. Bake, 1 pan at a time, in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until pale golden, about 6 minutes.

One at a time, remove cookies from pan and turn over; quickly roll around 1/3-inch (8 mm) thick handle of wooden spoon. Slip cookie off handle; let cool on rack. Repeat with remaining batter.

Dip half of each cookie into melted chocolate; roll chocolate in hazelnuts. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
