chocolate hazelnut cookies

I’m on a bit of a cookie bender, in case you hadn’t noticed. There were those snickerdoodles, some choc chip condensed milk wonders, meringue cookies (on the way!) and these babies.

Random collection of facts about these cookies:

They’re big. They’re chewy. And they make people happy.

They’re really easy to make, and they placate a crowd. You get to lick the Nutella spoon and they didn’t fit in my cookie jar!

I still haven’t put pictures of my awesome cookie jar up here. I will be, probably in about a week.

Enjoy!

Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Adapted from Two Peas and their Pod

1 1/3 cups plain flour

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

125g butter, room temperature

½ cup nutella

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

¾ cups toasted hazelnuts

150g chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Cream butter, sugars and Nutella. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition; scrape down sides of the bowl.

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in to the mixture and fold in until just incorporated.  Fold in hazelnuts and chocolate.

Drop tablespoons of cookie dough onto baking tray covered with baking paper, about two inches apart. Bake about seventeen minutes, rotating trays at the halfway mark.

Remove trays from oven and let rest about five minutes before sliding onto a cooling rack with a spatula. Try not to gobble them up in five minutes because they’re really good to share!
