Nutella Double Chocolate Cookies | Cookie Recipes

It has been ages since I have shared a cookie recipe in this space. It is because I had not been making cookies that often. I bought a set of cookie cutters in the start of this year hoping to make cut out cookies on some occasion. I also bought a cookie scoop last week as an impulse buy. Luckily I got a reason to make these delicious beauties. Our friends were visiting us and what better reason would be there to make them.
Makes 3 dozen cookies
Maida/All purpose flour - 1 cup + 1 tbsp
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Butter - 6 tbsp
Brown sugar - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup (see notes below)
Nutella (Chocolate Hazelnut Spread) - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
Whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt together in a bowl. Beat the butter with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the sugar and beat until creamy. Add the Nutella and continue to beat until smooth. Add the egg and beat for half a minute and mix the vanilla. Now add the flour mixture in 3 additions beating well until no traces of flour remain. Fold in the chocolate chips. Cover the dough with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop or with a help of two spoons, scoop the dough and place the dough in the sheet with 2 inch spacing, 12 cookies per sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. When done allow to cool in the sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to the wire rack to cool completely. These cookies are super addictive, so share with your friends.
Notes: These cookies were bit too sweet for me. Next time I would reduce about 2 tbsp of sugar in the recipe.
