How to Make Nutella Cookies

In your mixing bowl, you will beat together 1/4 cup room temperature butter, 1/4 cup shortening

and 1/2 cup Nutella.

Beat those smooth, and then add in a half cup each of white and brown sugar. Beat them until creamy.

Beat in 3/4 teaspoon hazelnut extract and 1 egg.

In a bowl, stir together 1 1/4 c all-purpose flour, 3/4 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt.

Once your creamy mixture is combined and smooth, stir in your dry ingredients. Mix well and be sure to scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula. Once the dough is ready, cover it with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for an hour or more.

When you are ready to bake, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Scoop the dough out into 1 inch balls. Form them with your hands if you need to, but if you have a little cookie scoop, that works perfectly. With a fork dipped in sugar, lightly press the dough down in a criss-cross pattern, like you would a peanut butter cookie.

Bake the cookies for 9 minutes. Cool a couple minutes and then remove to a rack and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
