The Secret Recipe Club: Nutella-Chocolate Chip Cookies


I just joined a cool cooking blog club called The Secret Recipe Club. Each month you are given another person's blog. You can make anything form this person's blog, and however many recipes you want to. You just can't post til the given date or let that person know you have her blog. Pretty cool!

My blog for the month is Sara at Cupcake Muffin. Check her site out; she has a lot of nice looking recipes! I chose Nutella-Chocolate Chip Cookies. I was going to a picnic and thought these look heavenly and I had all the ingredients. These are super simple to make and are DELICIOUS! You must bake them!

Nutella-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup Nutella
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or coarsely chopped dark chocolate
1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts, optional (I omitted)

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with foil or parchment paper.

2. Whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.

3. Beat together the butter and sugars; add Nutella and beat until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Fold in the dry ingredients, followed by chocolate chips or chunks, and nuts if using.

4. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls two inches apart on the cookie sheets and then flatten slightly by hand. Bake 8-10 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.

About 4 dozen small cookies.
