Guest Post: Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies


Hello, everyone! I'm Elizabeth from Four and Twenty Blackberries. Kyleen and I are posting on each other's blogs today, so be sure to check out her Bailey's Chocolate Cheesecake on my blog.

I decided to make these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies one Sunday to bake one last time before the school week started. I do not normally bake or cook Monday-Thursday, so I try to make as many recipes as I can on the weekends.


Although I don't have nutella very often, I loved these cookies and they were a great way to end the weekend and start yet another week.

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

makes 2-3 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup nutella, divided
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375˚F. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Cream the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined. Add the dry ingredient mixture until just combined on low speed. Beat in 1/4 cup of the nutella. Fold in the chocolate chips, followed by the nutella. This last addition of nutella should be in streaks, but not fully mixed.

Take a scant 1/4 cup of the dough, roll into a ball, and tear in half. Place each half on the prepared sheets about 2 inches apart.

Bake 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are lightly browned and slightly underdone. Allow to cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
