Nutella Cookies

YUM YUM!!! Are the words that come to mind when I think of these cookies. I found this recipe in a magazine called Cuisine At Home the December 2011 issue.

When I took these babies out of the oven I had to try one, (so did my husband) and WOW they were so ooey and gooey. My husband and I absolutely loved these. The next day I took most of them to work with me to give to my co-workers. I wondered if they were still as delicious as they were right out of the oven. But to my surprise they turned crispy! I am not a fan of crispy cookies, but I kept taking more bites out of this delicious but crispy cookie. I said wow the flavor in this cookie is incredible so much that I don’t even mind the crispy texture of the cookie. I still think fresh out of the oven is the best time to munch on cookies, but they can’t stay warm forever. I have to say this is my first favorite crispy cookie. I can see myself making these for years to come! Enjoy!!!

I'm making these as Thanksgiving-week nibbles. My MIL made them a few weeks ago and they are fantastic!
