Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: about 2 dozen cookies


2/3 cup Nutella
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
coarse sea salt


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place Nutella in a pastry bag fitted with a medium round tip or a ziploc bag with the corner sipped off. Pipe 1 1/2 teaspoon dollops of Nutella onto the parchment paper, you should have about 26 dollops. Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer for at least 45 minutes, or while you prepare the cookie dough.
In a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Continue cooking, swirling pan constantly until butter is dark golden brown and has nutty aroma, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a large heatproof bowl. Cool to room temperature, about 25 minutes.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the browned butter and brown sugar until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Using a rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into egg mixture until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Wrap tightly in the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a 1½-inch ball between your palms, then flatten the dough ball and place 1 frozen Nutella dollop in the center of the dough. Top with another heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a 3 inch ball (Each cookie will have 2 tablespoons of dough). Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls about 3 inches apart (you should be able to fit 8 cookies on each sheet). Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt.
Bake for 11 to 14 minutes, sprinkling lightly with additional sea salt after baking if desired. Let cookies cool on sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

    OMG! Seriously. I’m staring at that first photo and drooling on my keyboard. Somehow that zucchini I’m chopping up for dinner is looking very sad… :)

    Bookmark them, then make them. These are awesome! One question. I baked some a silpat mat; others on parchment. The ones on parchment did not spread the same way the ones on the silpat did. But, we couldn’t decide which way we liked better. Both, just incredible. Thank you!!!!

    I love how thick and beautiful these cookies are, and then throwing some nutella in the middle!! Wow, although my other half could probably do without the filling, I know it would be totally amazing :-)

    I made these cookies today to take to a Nutella loving friend who just had twins … and had to try one (or two) myself … they are delicious!!
    The browned butter gives such a great flavor to the dough … thanks for the great recipe!
