Nutella Hazelnut Cookies










Nutella Hazelnut Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Nutella
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook butter, whisking frequently, until it turns golden brown and foams, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate until melted. Place sugar in a large mixing bowl; add butter-chocolate mixture, and beat using a mixer on medium speed, until well combined and grainy - about 2 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat Nutella, eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture, until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined; stir in hazelnuts until combined.

Roll tablespoons of dough into balls, place on cookie sheets, and flatten slightly using palms of hands. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until set and slightly crisp. Cool 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 3 dozen cookies

  4. I feel sooo cool that I saw all those things you're talking about. Yeah, Serena was kinda scary, Kanye was a complete jerk, but you didn't say how awesome Beyonce was to get Taylor back on stage during her own winning moment to finish her acceptance speech.

    Between yesterday's cookies and these, you're going to turn us all into diabetics!

  9. Thank you for answering the question of "What should I bring to the barbecue on Sunday" question.

    If I could choose how I want to die, it would be with a spoon and as many jars of Nutella as it would take to kill me. It is a magical substance.

  13. Sounds like a toasted hazelnut bath would hurt...maybe an exfoliation? Or maybe just stick to putting them in delicious-looking cookies!

  16. Em are these soft or chewy? Crispy?

    Think I'm going to make Noah some for his birthday. he's gaga over Nutella, which he calls 'MUHtella' for some reason.

    We buys ours bulk at Costco. We're serious about the stuff.

  22. I agree with you on Sundays, football, football, football. Ok, and I do fit Target endcaps in there sometimes, but don't tell everyone :)

    Nutella is some magical stuff. I hear it can heal cuts if you put it on your skin too :) Ok kidding...

    You did it again. By the way, the dress you liked that I posted was from a company called Shabby Apple . Thought you might like to know.

    It would take an awful lot of hazelnuts to fill a bathtub though ;)

  38. Yummm!! I've been eating and loving Nutella ALL 20 years of my life!! This is simply making it even better! I've never baked with Nutella, coz I always end up emptying the jar when I'm thinking of a recipe, leaving me none to add into the recipe :P :P

    The cookies look absolutely sinful!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. You think YOU're behind on reading blogs. Sigh!
    Deeeelicious cookies, I agree. I have a hard time using Nutella in baking because I love it best right on a spoon! But if someone GAVE me some of those.....wink, wink. ;)

  40. ohhh.. what a fab way to use Nutella! I'm bookmarking this. thanks! =D

  41. i tried these and they taste so good. the only problem i had with them is that they would stick to the pan like crazy. the first few batches were a waste then i figured out what to do. but they are so yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Found your blog by googling "Nutella Cookies". For the life of me, I can't figure out why I hadn't thought of searching for that before--very disappointed with myself.

    Anyhow, the last batch of cookies just came out of the oven. Most excellent. I made a couple of minor variations/substitutions:
    1) Cocoa powder instead of solid (don't like messing around with trying to melt pieces... prefer the instant gratification that comes with the powder).
    2) Used a melon baller to scoop and reduced time down to 10 min--prefer softer cookies. Ten minutes was perfect for my liking.

    Only one problem with the whole experience... the dough is so good that I was full by the time the first pan came out of the oven. Force fed myself two cookies anyway and now I'm feeling a bit sick.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  43. I just made these cookies, they are delicious!! Thanks for the recipe! They remind me of Baci - the little Italian hazelnut chocolates. I ate them constantly when I was studying abroad in Italy!
