Nutella Cookies–Secret Recipe Club

 I browsed her many recipes that I will be sure to revisit. I mainly hit her baked section. I could not resist the idea of a Nutella cookie.   I had some hazelnuts in my freezer so I was easily drawn to this recipe.This is my first month blogging with the Secret Recipe Club and I am thrilled. I was on a waiting list and actually forgot I had applied but thrilled to be included.

If you do not know about this club I will give you a little background. Basically you are given another to browse and find a recipe you would like to try. However, you do not reveal your blog until the designated day. Drum roll… I was assigned the blog New Yorker By Heart for my first mission.

I had never been on a blog that required you to use the translation tool so that was fun!! However, in her about me section it says she lives in the South. New Yorker by Heart is disabled with fibromyalgi and she cooks to off set the pain. She has a cookbook coming out this year as well. I am totally impressed.

Nutella Cookies
 
These cookies are large in size but very thin. I loved them especially warm out of the oven. Warm chocolate who is complaining.

The batter is very thick so you don’t think they will spread as much as they do.

Thanks for the tip on spreading them apart on the cookie sheet, you will be glad you did. Check out this transformation.

After:

I read some of the reviews on the original site the recipe was found and I am glad I added the hazelnuts. I think they add that extra texture needed in these rather flat but delicious cookies.

The recipe makes 4 dozen and since Nutella is expensive and I really don’t need 4 dozen cookies I halved the recipe. Everything worked out great… I think I now wonder if I should have kept the original amounts of baking powder and baking soda?

I stored a few in the freezer and after a week and half, they still taste yummy!
