This cheeky little recipe follows simple steps but can be a little harder than it looks due to folding the nutella into the cookies … I fancied baking something with the pot of nutella sitting in my cupboard and so chose chocolate chip cookies to satisfy my cravings.
For this recipe you will need:
-100g unsalted butter
-135g caster sugar
-2 eggs, beaten
-285g self raising flour
-150g milk chocolate chips
-1 tub of nutella, as needed
Begin by preheating the oven to approximately 170 degrees – be careful not to turn it up higher as these cookies are very easy to burn. Mix the butter until creamy and add the caster sugar.
Beat the eggs together in a bowl and mix into the butter and sugar.
Weigh out the self raising flour and sift into the mixture to remove any lumps. Fold in gently until it forms a dough. I would also recommend adding in the chocolate chips during this stage before the dough forms as it’s easier to mix them in then!
After the dough has formed, take a tea break and leave it to cool in the fridge for 10 minutes. After it has cooled, line a baking sheet with grease proof paper to prevent the cookies from sticking. This is where it gets technical…
Take a tablespoon of the dough and press it into your hand so it is flat. Lie it carefully on the baking tray. Take a teaspoon of nutella and drop it into the centre of the flat cookie. Then carefully fold the nutella in to form a parcel and only the dough is showing. Very gently press down on the dough so you get it as flat as possible without making it ooze nutella…
Repeat this step until you have used up all the dough. Place the cookies carefully in the oven and bake for 12-13 mins. Be sure you don’t burn them as there is a very fine line between golden brown and burnt! You’ll end up with tasty, soft cookies with a delightful filling! Enjoy 🙂
