Winter has made himself really comfortable up here in Joburg recently. I'm like, "Excuse me dude, don't you wanna just back off a little?!" He makes things particularly hard for me when it comes to shooting the things I bake. I have zero experience in photography so I can't just quickly fiddle around on my camera to adapt to this gloomy, winter lighting. Maybe one day, when I'm really bored, I will Google my problem and get an answer. Just not today.
Recipe from here.
½ cup butter, at room temperature
½ cup sugar
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ cup Nutella
½ tsp Frangelico (if you have it, if not vanilla will work just fine)
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
2. Cream butter with an electric mixer about 1 minute until smooth. Add in both sugars. Beat on high speed about 3 minutes until light & fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
3. With the mixer on low, add the egg and Frangelico (or vanilla). Then add the Nutella and mix well.
4. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium and mix just until the dough is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
5. Using a small ice cream scoop (or a teaspoon) form the dough into balls and place on greased cookie sheet.
6. Bake 6-7 minutes. Let cookies cool about 5 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
