Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 2 dozen
1 Cup Unsalted Butter, Softened (2 Sticks)
1 (13 oz.) Jar Nutella
1 Cup Light Brown Sugar, Packed
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Large Egg
4 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3 1/2 Cups Flour
4 Teaspoons Cornstarch
2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Cream together butter, nutella, sugars, egg, and vanilla extract using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or a hand mixer until well combined, about 4 minutes. Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and mix on low for 1 minute, until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix by hand. Form into 1/4 cup balls (about 1 1/4 inches) and flatten slightly. Place dough on a tray, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours, up to 5 days. To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees and place dough on greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 9 minutes until edges are set and center is just starting to set. Let cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Serve with a big glass of milk!
These cookies smell amazing coming out of the oven. But for some reason they break all the cookie rules - they are not good fresh out of the oven! When I first tasted it I was so disappointed, but just an hour or so later, much better! The best! Make these cookies this afternoon. If only just for the nutella!
