#12DaysofCookies: Nutella Cookies

Eleven days until our second annual Cookie Swap for a Cause and there's still time to get your ticket! We're counting down the days with a different cookie recipe each day. I'm a huge sucker for the creamy, chocolaty deliciousness of Nutella, so today I'm excited to share a Nutella cookie recipe from Kristen Gough of the food blog My Kids Eat Squid.

Nutella Cookies

Tweaked from CuisineAtHome
Prep time: 20 minutes + chilling/baking
Yield: 2 dozen

2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black onyx or espresso powder (optional, but good)
1 stick butter (8 tbsp.), room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup Nutella
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips (preferably Ghirardelli)

  1. Whip the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs and beat until combined.
  3. Mix in the Nutella and almond extract.
  4. In a separate, small bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder (if using).
  5. On slow speed, add the dry ingredients to the soft ones.
  6. Wrap the dough in parchment paper or plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour or overnight (preferred).
  7. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Scoop out tablespoon cookie dough balls onto lightly greased cookie pans or parchment-lined pans.
  9. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, let the cookies cool slightly on the pan before removing.
