These Nutella chocolate cookies are so easy and quick to make - chewy and crispy with a gooey Nutella centre! What more could you want? They are a perfect quick-fix for chocoholics .
unsweetened cocoa powder
finely ground salt
Preheat oven to 347°F / 175°C
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and white and brown sugar till smooth.
Mix in the beaten eggs, vanilla extract and salt.
Dissolve the baking soda in a teaspoon of water and stir till it dissolves, then add to mixture, blending well.
Fold in the cocoa powder and flour, then knead gently to make a dough.
Cover and refrigerate for minimum of 30 minutes.
Roll walnut size amounts, make an indentation and spoon ½ teaspoon of nutella before resealing. Flatten slightly and place on a lined baking tray, leaving approx. 3 inch spaces between them.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, till the edges are done, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Refrigerating the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes (up to 3 days) prior to baking gives these results:
The moisture from the wet ingredients in the dough gets a chance to absorb properly into the dry ingredients, making the dough less sticky
The butter will take longer to melt in the oven, limiting the spread of the cookies. As the cookies crisp up on the outside, they are not able to continue spreading. This keeps them thicker.
The flavour of the cookies
the longer the dough is kept refrigerated and they develop a wonderful rich caramel flavour.
