|Dark dutch processed Hershey's cocoa my all time favorite!! And a tablespoon of nutella another all time fave make up these sammich cookies :)|
A concoption of buttery, sugar, and nutella goodness to be whipped up in the mixer. I added the flour once the butter,sugar, and nutella were whipped. The batter was the most fragrant batter I've ever made and it was also very soft, but manageable to roll into dough balls.
My cookies were sent to Laura from A Healthy Jalapeno , Stephanie (CopyKat Recipes ) and Susan from(Mercer and Sage) . Be sure to check out all of these lovely ladies' blogs, I have been oooh-ing and aaaah-ing their recipes and...I can't stop!! I received cookies from Katie (The Hardistys) very delicious chocolate pralines, Jaynie (Junabug) made these awesome oatmeal-raisin walnut cookies, and Shannon (A Periodic Table) made these yummy buttery sables 3 ways! I have once again evolved into Cookie Monster, a nickname I thought I'd left behind in high school.

Dark Chocolate Nutella Sandwhich Cookies
adapted from The Faux Martha
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup oats (ground)
- 1/4 cup Hershey's Dark Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons Nutella
- 1 egg
- 1 26 oz. jar of Nutella
In a large bowl combine flour, oats, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda. Preheat oven at 375F, and in another large bowl add sugar, butter and nutella, using a mixer, mix well until mixture becomes fluffy. Add in the egg last and only mix until it's well combined, no over mixing. Slowly add flour mixture, and using a spatula, mix the ingredients. The dough will have a very light texture, and it will smell sooo good. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, and using a tablespoon scoop out dough and roll into a ball. I used my 1/4 cup to lightly press the dough balls, they came out to a nice size. Place them on a baking sheet about 1 inch apart for 8 minutes in the oven.
Once they are done leave them on the baking sheet for an additional minute, then move to a cooling rack. Once they are cool spread with Nutella and sandwich together :)
