When my friend Susan asked me to join her and about 20 other bloggers for something called #cookieweek, I obviously jumped at the opportunity, even if I wasn’t sure what I was getting into at first. I’m a bit cookie-obsessed- as you may know, I co-owned a baking business for a while that specialized exclusively in cookies, and rarely a week goes by where I don’t come up with some new concoction.
These Nutella cookies are some of my absolute favorites to bake, especially during the holiday season. They are guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face- which isn’t surprising given their namesake and main ingredient is that gorgeous ambrosia of the gods, Nutella!
- ½ cup butter (1 stick), at room temperature
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup Nutella
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream together butter and sugars in a large bowl. Add the Nutella, egg, and vanilla, and beat to combine again.
- Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients slowly to the wet ingredients and carefully beat together to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Form into 1.5″ balls and bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat for 8-9 minutes, until tops are no longer glossy.

Chocolatey, sweet and laced with a hint of hazelnut- you cannot find a more perfect cookie!

The iconic Kitchenaid stand mixer was born in 1919, from there stemmed an entire kitchen of high-performance appliances -all created with the same attention to detail and quality. OXO’s mission is dedicated to providing innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier. King Arthur Flour was founded in 1790. As America’s oldest flour company, they provided pure, high-quality flour to residents of the newly formed U.S. Still going strong, they are the nation’s premier baking resource. Silpat was founded in 1965 by M Guy Demarle in Northern France. He was an experience baker seeing a better way to bake bread with forms using non-stick silicone coatings. He invented the first non-stick baguette baking tray and a few years later invented and created the original Silpat. Zulka Pure Cane Sugar is a Non GMO Project Verified “Morena” sugar – a term used to described granulated sugars that do not undergo conventional refining processes. Zulka is perfect for baking, it tastes better, is less processed and is a cup for cup replacement.
