NUTELLA-STUFFED RED VELVET COOKIES Recipe

Directions

  1. Make the Dough Overnight: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a baking sheet by lightly greasing it. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and red food coloring, mixing well.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add these dry ingredients to the butter mixture, stirring until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips gently.
  3. Chill the dough overnight, or for at least 12 hours, to enhance the flavors.
  4. Bake the Cookies: Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Leave about 2 inches of space between each dough ball. Create a well in the center of each dough ball and spoon in 1 tablespoon of Nutella. Seal the dough around the Nutella.
  5. Decorate the top of each cookie with a few chocolate chips and bake for 12 minutes. Avoid overcooking.
  6. Allow the cookies to cool on a rack for 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • The amount of Nutella can be adjusted according to personal preference. The cookies are designed to be rich and indulgent, but you can reduce the filling for a subtler flavor.
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness.
