Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Leslie


Some days I just have to bake something.  A lot of times it's because I need a major sugar fix and nothing will satisfy it like a fresh-out-of-the-oven something or other.  But other times it's because baking just feels so good.  It's theraputic, almost.

I bake when I'm bored.  When I'm sad.  When I'm happy.  I can find an excuse almost anytime to bake something.  But this time, it was just because these cookies looked amazing.  And they were!

I found a bunch of different recipes out there, all of them using different techniques with the Nutella.  I wanted to be able to see the Nutella in my recipe, so I just mixed it in until it was slightly swirled throughout.


P.S.  This dough is delicious.

So, after baking these babies up, I know your worries will be washed away.  They really were great.  And although they are very similar to your typical chocolate chip cookie, the Nutella adds a little something extra.


I love the marbled look of them.

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (1 stick, softened)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Nutella
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and prep baking sheets with parchment paper, or nothing, if you are me.

2. In a bowl, whisk together your flour, soda, and salt.

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar.  When ingredients are incorporated, add the eggs and vanilla.

4. Slowly add your dry ingredients until they are combined.

5. Add the Nutella and give your mixer a few pulses to incorporate it. Finally add in the chocolate chips.

6. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop the dough onto your baking sheets and bake for 9-11 minutes.



Enjoy these delectable delights!
