I will admit to you that Nutella and I have had a long lasting affair. If you don't know what Nutella is, you are missing out. It is a hazelnut spread made with skim milk and cocoa. I have been trying to figure out a way to combine my love of nutella and baking...thankfully the blogger Alpineberry Mary did it for me! I found a recipe for Nutella Cookies on her blog Alpineberry Mary and made them tonight.
It starts like any cookie recipe by creaming the butter with the sugars. I did go ahead and add 8 tablespoons (1 stick) of butter rather than just the 7 her recipe called for. The Nutella, egg and vanilla is then added.
In a separate bowl, you mix the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients and then the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
I always use parchment paper. I love that it is easy to clean up and a cookie will never stick to my sheet pans. I don't need any kind of pam or butter to grease up the pan either. Bake these in a 350 degree oven for 11 minutes.
Let them cool for 5 minutes.
Give these a try, you won't be disappointed.
