Nutella Cookies

If you know me well, you'll know that Nutella/Hazelnut is literally my favourite thing ever, and a certain coffee shop sells a very nice cookie filled with Nutella goodness, and since it  isn't always accessible, here is my little take on the recipe!

Firstly, you'll need to preheat your over to 180° or 350°F (Gas Mark 4). Then set out your baking trays with baking paper on them, I recommend using two or three trays, depending on how many cookies you end up making!

This recipe makes anywhere from 8 - 16 cookies, depending on how big your make the dough balls further down in the recipe!

You will need:

220g or 1 cup Unsalted Butter
130g or 3/4 cup Soft Brown Sugar
225g or 1 cup White Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
525g or 3 1/2 cups Plain Flour
1 pinch of Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 bag Chocolate Chips
1 large jar of Nutella! (and a spare spoon obvs.)

To start, simply add your butter and both sugars into a large mixing bowl, then whisk until you get a nice fluffy consistency. After this, beat both of your eggs in a separate bowl before adding them into your butter/sugar combination before whisking again. (the consistency will look like a combination of dodgy melted ice cream and even dodgier cat food. sorry.) 

Once you have your gloopy combination, simply add the flour, baking soda, salt and vanilla extract and mix. I find it easier to do this step with my hands rather than the whisk. Shortly before your dough consistency is formed, add your chocolate chips, you can use as little as many as you like, I think half a bag is perfect for this quantity.

When your dough is formed, grab an handful and flatten it into the palm of your hand, then grabbing your Nutella, place a spoonful (or three) into the centre of the dough before folding the edges back in a creating a ball. Then place the ball of dough on your baking tray and place the folded edge down.

Continue to do this for all of your mixture, and then bake for 10-15 minutes (I recommend checking after 10 depending on the size of your cookies!)

Leave to cool and enjoy!
