Boy are these rich, but they sure are good.
- 1 cup Nutella
- 2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- Mix the Nutella and flour together until well Blended and then add in the egg. I mix mine with the dough hook of my KitchenAid mixer, just as I was making biscotti or bread. Once the mixture starts forming a ball and in the nuts. Make sure the dry ingredients are incorporated into the mixture from the bottom and use the rubber spatula to make sure that it’s all mixed together well.
- Once you have a nice soft though, simply portion out the cookie dough with a meatball stainless steel scooper it’s about 2 tablespoons a piece.
- I worked it with my hands to make sure the warmth of my hands mix the dough really well, and to make sure that the Nets didn’t make the cookie Fall Apart.
- Put up parchment on two large baking sheets. You can buy the pre-cut parchment sheets from Amazon, that makes it really easy to bake. You don’t have to cut it with scissors you just barely rip-it the size to fit the pan.
- I put a smear of butter smeared on to the baking sheet to hold down the parchment paper so it doesn’t want to roll up.
- I begged these cookies in a preheated 350-degree oven for 8 minutes and I check them, making sure that they didn’t get to Brown. Just look at them and make sure they don’t over Brown. Once you feel like they’re slightly firm to the touch and take them out and let them sit on your counter on a trivet, cooling on Me sheet about 5 minutes. Just check them and you’ll see that they’re forming up and ready to take off the sheet and put onto a plate. I made these to give away as Christmas gifts.
