[Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies]

I've attempted Nutella cookies before ... they didn't turn out as I had hoped.  These ones?  Got the recipe from Pinterest and just having this post up proves they rocked.  Crunchy on the outside and smooth in the middle ... bake for 11 minutes and flatten with a fork - works well *wink*.

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
7 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temp.
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2/3 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


- Mix together flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside dry ingredients.
- Cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in Nutella and vanilla extract. 
- Mix in egg.
- Add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Add chocolate chips.
- Chill for 1 hour. (This step can be skipped if you want, but I always chill my cookie dough because it apparently makes a huge difference).
- Drop tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets. 
- Bake at 350 for about 11 minutes until the edges look set. 
- Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then carefully remove to cooling racks.
