Nutella Cookies

Nutella cookies...enough said! We love Nutella, so naturally anything with it would be amazing, right?  We picked some up a few weeks ago at the grocery store and I've been wanting to try a recipe with it, so today I did. I believe it's a keeper ladies and gentlemen.

 Whisk together the following and then set aside:
Flour, Baking Powder and Cocoa Powder
Cream together butter and sugars.

Add vanilla extract and Nutella.
Add half of the flour mixture, combine and then add the milk. Once combined, add remaining flour mixture and mix until combined.
Mixture all combined.
Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Then scoop onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake as directed.


Chocolate Nutella Cookies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup Nutella
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325°
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Set the mixture aside. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add the extracts and beat for another 30 seconds or so. Add the Nutella and beat until smooth.
With the mixer running, add half of the flour mixture and mix until combined. Add the milk, mixing until combined completely, then add the remaining flour mixture and mix completely. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes.
When you’re ready to bake the cookies, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place them on the lined cookie sheet, allowing about 2″ between the dough balls.
Lightly press the dough balls with the bottom of a drinking glass and then bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are crackly on top and soft, but starting to set. Remove from the oven and allow them to stand for about 5 minutes and then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
