Nutella Brownie Batter Cookies
Makes 4 dozen cookies
sticks unsalted butter
light brown sugar
eggs plus 1 egg yolk
unsweetened cocoa powder
bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine butter and sugar.
Mix together over medium speed until smooth.
Add eggs and Nutella and continue to mix until combined.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
With the mixer running on low, pour the flour mixture into the bowl with the batter, adding a little at a time.
When it is all combined add vanilla.
Turn the mixer off and add chocolate chips, stirring in gently with a spatula.
Using a small ice cream scoop add rounded balls of batter, 4 rows of 3, to a lined baking sheet.
Bake for 9-11 minutes until no longer shiny and sticky but the centers are still gooey. Don’t over bake or they will be hard.
Let cool slightly before moving to a cooling rack.
12.Repeat with remaining batter.
You can chill the rounded dough balls on the cookie sheet for 20 minutes before baking. This helps them not spread as much when baking.
