After making those delicious chewy Nutella cookies, I had this sudden urge to make a Nutella sugar cookie because the chewy cookies looked a little bit like sugar cookies.
I played around with some sugar recipes. I wanted to make these chewier and flatter, so I used some brown sugar and a lot of Nutella.
I loved how perfectly round and flat these cookies were after baking. They were puffy initially, but sank back down after they cooled. It was just the look I was going for.
The cookies were chewy, sweet, with a light taste of Nutella.
Nutella Sugar Cookies
Yield: 3 dozen
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of Nutella
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, Nutella and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll dough into balls about one inch in diameter and place onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Using palm of hand, flatten cookie balls into round discs.
3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cookies finish cooling before removing from cookie sheet.
