Nutella Cookies


I haven't baked cookies for awhile (think, couple of years). In fact, the last time I baked cookies, I used cookie dough and still managed to get unshapely results. So I wasn't too sure whether or not I wanted to try baking cookies from scratch, but I saw this recipe {here} and fell in love. Who doesn't love Nutella? It goes with everything. I can eat it with toast for breakfast or with strawberries for a snack. The best thing about this cookie recipe is that it doesn't require so many ingredients so it's very doable on a college student's budget. 


It bakes a lot faster than cupcakes and tastes just as good! I admit, I was a little skeptical of how it was going to turn out, taste-wise. I thought the Nutella might be overpowering, but these have to be the best homemade cookies. They came out of the oven perfectly shaped and tasted even better than they looked. It was crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I couldn't have asked for a better re-experience for baking cookies!


In addition to the recipe, I added mini chocolate chips and raisins to the center of my cookies. They looked too plain without some sort of decor. If you prefer cookie balls, roll the cookie dough into 1 inch balls and stick them into the oven without pressing them flat. To press the dough into perfectly shaped cookies, I used the bottom of a half-pint mason jar, but you can also use the bottom of any glass.
