Most Indulging cookie ever!
Nutella cookies can wake you up even in the middle of the night. Nutella cookies are time saver and no cookies can take its place. Simple, easy and mouthwatering cookies ever.
Have you ever felt the craving for a cookie that oozes out chocolate just after your first bite?! I have often felt it and now my little toddler has also joined hands with me. She loves this cookie more than i do. My little lady love can make out exactly from the aroma itself that what is baking inside the oven.
Here is a quick and simple recipe for you that can be baked in less than 15 mins.
In a big bowl take melted butter and sugar. Beat it until they combine well together. It is not necessary to use electric beater. you can whisk with your hand also. since we are not looking for a cake like texture we dont have to stress upon the butter’s consistency. because we are looking for a crunchier yet mellowy from inside cookie its OK to melt your butter with the help of heat.
Add flour and baking soda. if the butter is unsalted add a pinch of salt as well. now note carefully that adding a tspn of corn flour helps the batter from developing any minor gluten. Meaning if you want your cookie to not appear like mini cakes then do add a little bit of corn flour, It should give your cookie a crunchier crust and chewy like from inside… Hope you got what i am trying to say.

Refrigerate this dough for half n hour. In a baking tray lined with parchment paper align these cookie dough of one tablespoon measurement leaving 2 inch space from all sides. then add a tbsp of nutella and place it on top of this dough again covering from all sides meaning nutella should be sandwiched. another way is make a bowl shaped dough in your hand and pour the nutella in the center and roll like a ball and give a very slight press from top after you have aligned it on the tray. make sure you dont have any cracks to let nutella ooze out while they are baking. Bake at 200 degree for 12 – 14 minutes or until the top looks golden brown.
