OMG, someone please take these away from me. I can't stop eating them!
I somehow ended up with two jars of Nutella in my pantry, so I decided I better do something with Nutella before I completely forget about them and they expire. Strangely, I don't remember what I had in mind for them when I bought them. Maybe I was going to make a batch of Peanut Butter and Nutella Yeast Rolls, but even that doesn't explain why I had TWO jars?? Maybe I just caught a good sale and couldn't pass them up that day. :)
I love oatmeal cookies - crispy, chewy, or fat and pillowy. Either way, I do like to mix the types of oats I use. The old fashioned oats are a coarser texture, while the quick oats are smaller. I just like the textural difference, but you could certainly use all of one - just keep an eye on the first tray to see any difference in baking time.
1 c butter, softened
1/2 c light brown sugar
3/4 c sugar
2 t Kahlua liqueur
1/2 c Nutella
1 1/2 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c quick oats
1 1/2 c old fashioned oats
- Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy
- Add the eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated, followed by the Kahlua
- Next mix in the Nutella
- Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt, then add to the butter/sugar mixture a little at a time, scraping down the bowl as necessary
- Stir in the oats
- Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto parchment-lined baking sheets
- Bake at 350° for 12"
See how the cookies on the left don't look done yet? That tray just came out of the oven, while the cookies on the right were the last tray to come out and are now set.
