Eating a rich chocolate cookie is about the best thing ever!! These cookies are right up with the best, I think.
Nutella Sandwich Cookies
1/2 cup of light brown sugar, packed.
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup Nutella (you'll need another cup for the filling) DELICIOUS!!
2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (you'll need a little more for rolling the cookies)
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup of raw sugar
Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees, and line two baking sheets with parchmnt or waxed paper.
In a mixer bowl, mix the brown sugar,white sugar, and Nutella on the second-lowest speed for 1 minute or until they are fully mixed. Add the butter and mix on lowest speed for 2 minutes or until the dough is whipped and light in color.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture to the Nutella mixture in the mixer bowl and beat on low for 2 minutes. Stop and scrape the sides of the mixer bowl after 1 minute. If the dough is crumbly add about a tablespoon of cold water mix a little more!
Dust a work surface and rolling pin with flour (to prevent sticking) Scooop out about 1/3 of the dough and cover it with wax paper.
Roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick sheet.
Use a 2 inch circular cookie cutter and punch out the cookies. Gently lift them onto the waxed paper or parchment lined baking sheets. Continue rolling and cutting cookies until you have used all the dough.
Place the baking sheets on the middle and bottom racks of the pre-heated oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove the sheets to the kitchn counter and sprinkle each cookie with a bit of raw sugar. Put the cookies back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
Take the cookies from the oven and let them rest for a minute or two then put them on a cooling rack.
When they are cool, spread 1/2 the cookies with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of Nutella and top with another cookie. These are delicious chocolate sandwich cookies!!!!
