Nutella Cookies {Recipe #99}

Hi all! I hope 2013 is treating you well so far!

Kyle and I have been starting up a new routine for a new schedule and I have been organizing and decorating our apartment like crazy! {a year later....} Posts coming soon! SO excited about it too!

Anyway, through all of this I have been struggling to get these last few recipes re-made {for pictures} and posted! But hopefully I can get in the last one by the end of the week! 

Then I will have a top 10 recipes of 2012 + 3 Runner's up recipes post and a best and worst cookbook post! Exciting! :) 

So here's the recipe you were waiting for!

I made this back in March for Kyle's birthday, but didn't have my camera with me at the time. They were delicious! Kyle loves nutella so the recipe was a hit! I would recommend these to anyone who loves chocolate. They are fairly dark chocolate-y which is nice. 

Nutella Cookies

Via pinterest & altered a bit

1 1/4 cups of flour {spooned into measuring cup and leveled off}
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt {only if you are using unsalted butter}
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 stick of butter softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract {real, please}
1/3 cup nutella
1/3 cup milk

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 
2) In a small bowl mix together flour, powders and salt {if using}.
3) in a mixer, cream butter and sugars. Then add extract. 
4) Next, add the nutella to the butter mixture.
5) Mix in half of the dry mixture into the wet mixture. Then add the milk. Then add the last 1/2 of the dry mixture and mix until well combined.
6) Cover and let dough chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes {I suggest longer}, up to 2 days.
7) Use a lined cookie sheet {with silpat mats, parchment paper etc.} Roll tablespoons of the batter into balls and place on cookie sheets. Flatten slightly and bake for 10-12 minutes. 
8) Let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack. 

Share & Enjoy! 

I Like to turn mine into cookie sandwiches by spreading a little bit of nutella in between 2 cookies! This also helps because I am less of a dark chocolate lover than Kyle is. So it makes it a little sweeter! It is delicious! :)

What is your favorite cookie recipe?
