Nutella Cookies with Sea Salt

June 20, 2011

I can’t remember how I stumbled across this recipe, but I’m sure glad I did. The only question I have is why didn’t I think of this? Nutella + cookies = baking genius.

These cookies have a wonderful blend of sweet and salty. Think sea salt caramel. If you’re not into that combination (Jeff isn’t in this case), the cookies are still good without the salt.

Nutella Cookies with Sea Salt
(from Sugarcrafter)

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup Nutella
1/3 cup milk
Sea salt, for sprinkling

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer or stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the vanilla extract and nutella, mixing until smooth. Add the dry ingredients half at a time alternately with the milk until well-combined.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator 15 minutes before baking.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll the dough into 1″ balls. Place 2″ apart on the parchment paper. Press down gently and sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake 10-12 minutes until just starting to set. Let cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely. Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.
