Nutella Cookies


I think I may have been one of the last people on the planet to try Nutella. The first time I heard of it was in some British chick lit book where the main character had a bit of an obsession with it when her dates didn't go well. Which, considering it was a chick lit book, happened pretty often. It was a few years later before I ever saw Nutella in the grocery store. Of course, I immediately bought some of it and then subsequently, fell in love with it.

Let's not talk about the bag of pretzels and the jar of Nutella that disappeared in a weekend, okay?

    • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
    • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
    • 1 tsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1/3 cup milk
    • 1/3 cup Nutella

1. In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar.
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
3. Add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture, then add the vanilla extract, milk and Nutella. Mix until well combined.
4. Turn out the dough onto a sheet of wax paper, wrap up and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
5. Preheat the oven to 325. Line baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper. Drop rounded tablespoons of the dough onto the baking sheets and press down with a glass. Bake for 12 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.

Oh yummy Nutella deliciousness. These cookies are amazing. My only complaint is that I didn't double the recipe. The cookies are rich so I recommend a nice cold glass of milk to go along side them.
