Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies

I am still working on the cookie swap. I have it all put together and carefuly decorated. I will post a picture only after I give the cookies to a special person. I had to make cookies thatare not fragile and won't arrive in crumbs. A cookie that everyone likes. A cookie that is very homey - what better than chocolate chip cookies? But with a hint of nutella - everyone loves nutella and I found out that November has a Nutella day! Hurray for Nutella (I wonder - is there a peanut butter day??)

These are great with a cup of coffee or even better - a glass of cold milk.

Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies
100 grams butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 cup nutella
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
200 grams chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 180 C. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchement paper.

In an electric mixer mix the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Add the vanilla and the egg and mix. Add the nutella and continue mixing until creamy.
Sift the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Add the chocolate chips by mixing with a wooden spoon.

Spoon dough with teaspoons onto sheets and bake 8-12 minutes. The cookies are done when they get crispy on the outside but look still doughy in the middle.
The cookies do spread.
Cool completely!
