I have officially moved to Colorado! I'm not sure how much baking is going to be happening in the first couple weeks of being up here, but I do have a yummy cookie recipe to share that I made a couple weeks ago. I actually made two different types of Nutella cookies in order to use up an old jar and make way for a new one, but these cookies were so much better than the others that I won't even waste your time with the other recipe. Oatmeal always makes the best cookies!
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet (or two) with parchment paper.
Cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar together with an electric mixer. Add the egg, vanilla, and Nutella and mix until well incorporated. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined.
Scoop out dough using a small ice cream scoop and bake for 7 minutes. The cookies do spread quite a bit, so make sure to place the dough balls a couple inches apart.
