Nutella Cookies

Who doesn't love Nutella. And i love how they try to make it sound like its healthy.... ITS CHOCOLATE! and it really isn't healthy when you make it into a cookie, but they are worth it. Found this at Best Bites

- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, lightly spooned into measuring cups and leveled with a knife
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
- 2/3 cup Dutch-process unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/3 cup Nutella
- 1/3 cup milk

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Set the mixture aside. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes or until smooth. Add the extract and beat for another 30 seconds or so. Add the Nutella and beat until smooth.
With the mixer running, add half of the flour mixture and mix until combined. Add the milk, mixing until combined completely, then add the remaining flour mixture and mix completely. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 15 minutes (and as long as 2-3 days).
When you’re ready to bake the cookies, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place them on the lined cookie sheet, allowing about 2″ between the dough balls.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are crackly on top and soft, but starting to set. Remove from the oven and allow them to stand for about 5 minutes and then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

I have to admit I am not the creator for most of these recipes! Most of these come from friends or the Foodnetwork, and other websites. I usually tweak it, but i get them from other sources. THANK YOU OTHER PEOPLE,but please... use them, circulate them, make them your own. Just make sure you give the credit to the right person, which isn't always me!
