Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 15 large cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature (113g)
- 2/3 cup light brown sugar packed (125g)
- 1/4 cup sugar (50g)
- 3/4 cups Nutella (245g)
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups flour (187g)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch cornflour in UK
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chunks
Combine softened butter, sugars, and Nutella in the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl, using electric mixer) and beat until ingredients are combined and well-creamed.
Add egg and vanilla extract and stir until well-combined.
In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Gradually add dry ingredients to wet until completely combined -- be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula to ensure that all ingredients are well-incorporated.
Stir in chocolate chunks.
Cover bowl with cling wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.
Once dough has finished chilling, preheat oven to 375F (190C) and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Remove from refrigerator and roll into approximately 2-Tablespoon-sized balls. Roll dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheet at least 2" apart.
Bake on 375F (190C) for 10-13 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool completely on cookie sheet. Enjoy!
