The last place you should ever be when hungry, other than at a supermarket, is pinterest. Yet that is where I always find myself drooling before deciding what I should make that day. While on the website I came across a Nutella cookie recipe that I knew I had to try. Even though I am not the best cookie maker, this time they ended up so good. I took my time and could not have been happier with the results. This cookie has a slight taste of Nutella which is not overpowering. I love the combination of a crunchy and chewy cookie and this was just that. Crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth chewy centre.
The recipe can be found here (click me). I followed all the same steps, but I decided not to put in the chocolate chips. With this recipe I was able to make 21 palm sized cookies.
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ cup Nutella or other hazelnut chocolate spread
½ tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream the butter and both sugars. Mix in the egg, Nutella, and vanilla. Next add in the dry ingredients ( flour, salt, baking soda) to the wet. Once everything is mixed, you can fold in the chocolate chips. Make small ice cream scoop balls, and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 6-7. I left mine in a 2 minutes longer, but you can decide how you like your cookies.
