Today I have a delicious cookie recipe for you! I was in the mood to make soem cookies and I found a reicpe for nutella cookies on one of my pinterest boards and it soudned perfect for what I wanted to eat. I had all the ingredients in house and decided to make them. I made a few tweaks to the recipe (more nutella and less chocolate chips) and they were delicious and I soon make them another time so I could share the recipe with you all. These nutella cookies or hazelnut paste cookies as I like to call them are soft an chewy delicious cookies that really taste like hazelnut paste and have chocolate chips in them. Perfect for any chocolate lover.
This recipe is based on American heritage Cooking her Soft Nutella Chcooclate Chip Cookies Recipe
- Flour – 220 gram/ 1 3/4 cups
- Nutella or other brand hazelnut paste – 81 gram/ 2/3 cup
- Butter – 113 gram/ 1/2 cup
- Sugar – 150 gram/ 3/4 cup
- Bittersweet Chocolate chips – 100 gram/ heaped 1/2 cup
- Egg – 1
- Vanilla Extract – 2 teaspoons
- Cornstarch – 2 teaspoons
- Baking Soda – 1 teaspoon
- Salt – a pinch
This recipe makes about two batches of cookies, enough to feed two people who love these cookies for 2-3 days.
- In a large bowl combine melted butter, hazelnut paste, sugar, egg and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
- Then add the dry ingredients, salt, cornstarch, baking sode and flour. Mix for a few minutes.
- Now stir in the chocolate chips. Yes the dough looks a bit weird, it’s supposed to, see pictures.
- Put the dough in the fridge for about 10 minutes. You can cool it longer ofcourse up till a whole day cooling. I tried to make the cookies without cooling and they get abit flatter then, but it is possible. Then I tried to cool them only for a short time and that worked too. So with at leats 10 minutes cooling you can bake them.
- Preheat your oven to 150 degrees celcius/ 350 degrees fahrenheit. Once the oven is warmed up, get the dough from the fridge and roll into small balls. Place them on a baking plate covered with bakign paper and space them apart.
- Bake for about 9 till 11 minutes or till the edges are set, but before they start to brown.
- Let the cookies cool down for a bit and then enjoy!
- Hzelnut Paste and peanut butter cookies. I haven’t tried this myself yet, but I imagine if you make half of this recipe and half of my peanut butter cookies recipe and then combine a small ball of each dough and smash it together you get a delicious cookie that taste like chocolate and penaut butter.
- No hazelnut paste cookies. Instead of hazelnut paste you can also use a different flavour of chocolate paste, like pure, milk or white chocolate paste. If you have something with a similiar texture like caramel, you might even be able to use that instead.
- Peanut Butter cookies. Use Peanut Butter instead of hazelnut paste and you have peanut butter cookies instead.
- Hazelnut Paste Cookies without chocolate chips or milk/ white chocolate chips. If you dont’like chocolate chips in your cookies or don’t have them, simply make them without. Or if you don’t like bittwrsweet chocolate feel free to use milk or white chocolate instead.
