SRC for June: Nutella Cookies!

Whoo hoo!    It is Secret Recipe Club time again!     If you have been under a rock for the past year, then let me explain Secret Recipe Club.   SRC is a club for the avid, rabid, zealous foodie.    The great hosts,   Jane, Suzanne, Angela and April, pair up the members each month.   The goal?   Lurk around your assigned site and find something fabulous to make and then share it with everyone during reveal day.

Secret Recipe Club

Today is the day!   Be prepared for a big foodie adventure for this reveal!  This month I got Jane’s Adventures in Dining.

Jane started her site during her maternity leave to chronicle what she was cooking.   It has morphed into so much more.    Her site is simply put, delightful.

She describes its current state as “dedicated to my journey to enjoying the life that I’ve been lucky enough to be given.”

And, I love her disclaimer:

 Any mistakes are my own and largely well-meaning.

I had been wanting to make something with Nutella for the longest time so I went for Jane’s Nutella Cookies.


 Nutella Cookies
From Jane’s Adventures in Dinner

1/2 c.  granulated sugar
1/2  c. brown sugar
1/3 c. nutella
1/2 c.  butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 c.  all-purpose flour
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 t.baking powder
1/2  t. baking soda
1/2 c. chopped hazelnuts

Prehheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together sugars, nutella and butter.   Add eggs one at a time and beat until incorporated.    Whisk dry ingredients together in a separate small mixing bowl and then add to batter.   Beat until incorporated.   Add hazelnuts and mix in.

Drop using a small cookie scoop on to a silpat or parchment lined pan.   Bake for 10-12 minutes (they’ll be a bit soft but take them out anyway otherwise the chocolate gets overdone).

These are great little cookies.   The only changes I made was to add some whole wheat flour and chopped hazelnuts (or filberts).

These added a nice texture to a really soft cookie.

I used Montana Wheat flour but if you can’t find that use whole wheat pastry flour.

This is the best stuff! (I have to travel to Iowa to get this!)

See how finely ground this is?

Really, truly delicious cookies!    I made a batch right before I had to leave town for a three-day conference (3 days).    When I returned home, there was not a crumb of these cookies left.     Guess I will have to make another batch for myself.

Please check out Jane’s site and take part in some of her adventures!
