Recipe: Nutella Cookies

Last week my co-worker sent out an email to tell us that there were Nutella cookies in the lunchroom. What? Nutella Cookies? I LOVE Nutella! Unfortunately, I was off-site for the day so I didn't get to try them, but she sent me the recipe and they're freaking delicious.

1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 cup of Nutella (this is where a WonderCup comes in handy!)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of chopped hazelnuts (I added a whole cup because 1/2 cup didn't look like enough)


Cream butter in an electric mixer for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the sugars and Nutella and mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for 30 seconds between each. Add the vanilla and mix for 10 seconds.

Sift together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda (do not skip this step as sifting eliminates clumps of cocoa). Mix into the butter mixture on low speed until fully incorporated, scraping down the bottom and sides at least once to ensure even mixing. Fold in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts and refrigerate the dough for ten minutes. (Preheat oven to 350F while the dough is chilling, otherwise you're just wasting electricity)

Spoon tablespoon-sized drops of dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheets for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Makes 6 dozen. (Depending on how much dough you eat)

The good thing about these cookies is that they're so rich that you can't eat too many of them at once. Well, you probably could find a way, but I wouldn't want to. And they have nuts, so they must be healthy, right?
