Adventures in Baking with Nutella

As I mentioned, I wanted to make some nutella treats for a friend. I saw tons of really great looking recipes here. I really wanted to make her cake or cupcakes but frosted goodies are probably a nightmare to bake. Brownies? I really wasnt feeling that. Although, now that I look at the list again, I do see some extremely simple, yummy brownies. Check these out. I have to make these tonight.

But I digress. I decided to make cookies. Now let me just say - I HATE making cookies. I never know when to take them out of the oven. I hate that I can only do one pan at a time. I hate that I have to monitor it so carefully that they need to be out of the oven as soon as the timer goes off. Too much work. Cakes and brownies are just so much easier. However, cookies are easier to mail. (brownies are probably easiest PT, why didn't you think of that?)

I chose 4 recipes then narrowed them down to these three. I hoped that I would at least get one batch right. Nutella Biscotti from Baking Bites, Nutella Lava Cookies and Whattalottachoca from What Smells So Good?

Can we just cut to the chase? Cut the long preamble? The Nutella Lava Cookies were A M A Z I N G! So amazing that I recreated them with choc chips in the middle instead of nutella because I was out of nutella. I finally made delicious cookies! Finally!
