Nutella Cookies

Today I felt stranded in my house. Not because I couldn't actually go anywhere, but because I didn't have anything chocolate in the house.  As I was perusing Pinterest, I saw a link to these Nutella cookies from Tasty Kitchen.  I read a few of the reviews and then made a few modifications of my own. They turned out great!  Here's what I came up with:

1C Flour (Simply substitute almond flour to make these gluten free!)
1C (plus a couple extra spoonfuls) Nutella
1 Egg
1/4C Chocolate chips (chopped in mini food processor)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix ingredients together. Dough will be a little crumbly, but just use your hands to combine and roll into balls.  Bake 8-10 minutes.

Mine didn't flatten very well, so I used a fork to press them down (like a peanut butter cookie) after I pulled them out of the oven. After they cooled for a couple minutes, I took a bite and thought they needed a touch of sweetness, so I sprinkled a teensy bit of powdered sugar on each cookie. I paired it with some ice cold milk and it was warm, chewy, and delicious.

A warm Nutella cookie and an ice cold glass of milk. Hallelujah.
