Nutella Cookies…

I have seen many recipes lately for baked goods that have Nutella in them.  I had never tried Nutella before, but when we went to the grocery store on Tuesday and they had a display at the end of the aisle I decided to give it a try.

I thought I was going to be baking 300 mini beer flavored cupcakes tomorrow for Beer Sprocket this weekend.  Since there is probably going to be some severe weather on Saturday they have postponed the event until May 12th.  So I decided to get my baking therapy in tonight

I saw this recipe for Nutella Cookies and decided to change it up a bit.

Here’s my recipe for Nutella Cookies:

Chocolate Nutella Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

Cook Time: 10-11 minutes


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup Nutella
1/3 cup almond milk


1. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and cocoa, set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter and sugars. Beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about two minutes. Add the vanilla and almond extract and beat until extracts disappear. Add the Nutella and mix until batter is smooth.

2. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, alternately with the almond milk in one batch, mixing well.  {I added a cup of semi sweet chocolate chips at the end.} 

3. When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place on baking sheets and gently press down on the dough ball. Continue making dough balls until the cookie sheets are filled-leave two inches in between cookies.

4. Bake cookies for 10-11 minutes or until soft, but starting to set. Remove cookies from the oven and let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.

These cookies were wonderful.

nutella    Man, can I take an awesome picture.  They tasted way better than what this picture looks like.  Kinda looks like little piles of poo, right?  Well they are awesome.

Here’s a better picture that I stole from the blog that had the recipe…


I just love finding a new recipe and having it turn out well the first time.  I’m going to have to be careful with these, I could just eat all three dozen all on my own, they are that good.
