Day 45 with Nutella

Today I tasted the best cookies ever!  Chef Thomas Kozinsky made these delicious cookies.  He was a bit reluctant to give me his recipe but he finally agreed and now I get to share it with you all!  These cookies are made with a lot of love and a lot of Nutella...Love and Nutella do go together, after all!  I hope you enjoy them.  If you do like the cookies, please post a comment and I will pass it along to Chef Tom! 

Nutella Cookies

1 cup softened unsalted butter
2 eggs
1 ½ tsp vanilla
¾ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 26.5 oz jar of Nutella

2 ¾ cup Flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt – kosher

¾ cup toasted hazelnuts

Mix together the first 6 ingredients until blended very well. Set aside

In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add this to the first 6 ingredients that are already blended. Mix everything together thoroughly. Add the toasted hazelnuts and mix in.

Take the dough and freeze until very firm. You want it to feel like almost as hard as frozen cookie dough.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Put the cookie dough in ¼ size balls on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for about 15 mins or until the cookies are firm but don’t overcook them or they will be too crunchy.
