If you are a regular visitor over here at Butter, you would totally be well aware of those facts.
I have made cookies filled with Nutella before, but that was a long time ago, and these are a different cookie recipe – one with chocolate chips. Even better!
And I loved these. The cookies were a great combination of chewy and crunchy, the chocolate chips made them extra yummy, and the big, gooey, Nutella lava centers were the best.
I ate one at every meal time for as long as they lasted. Not kidding.
NUTELLA FILLED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Cookie dough recipe adapted from Picky Palate.
220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 jar of Nutella (you won’t need the whole thing), refrigerated
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 3 trays with baking paper.
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until combined and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla.
Turn the mixer onto a low speed and slowly add the flour, salt and soda, mixing until just incorporated. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop or heaped tablespoon, scoop balls of the dough. Place a ball of dough in the palm of your hand and flatten it well. Place a teaspoon of Nutella in the center and fold the edges of the dough over, using your fingers to pinch them together and shape the dough around the Nutella.
Place on baking trays and bake for about 1o minutes, until lightly golden. Makes 32 cookies.
