As I mentioned yesterday, I was baking like crazy in anticipation of my teenaged grandchildren coming for a visit. I had never made these before but boy are they good. I had to freeze them or we would have eaten them all.
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup cocoa (not hot chocolate mix)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup Nutella spread
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 35-40 chocolate rosebuds
- small bowl of sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together everything up to the bowl of additional sugar and the rosettes, until well combined.
Using a teaspoon scoop (or teaspoon), scoop the dough and roll into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in the sugar and slightly flatten the top with a fork.
Bake one cookie sheet at a time for about 8-9 minutes and be sure to rotate the pan halfway through to ensure even baking.
Place a rosette in the center of each one and let stand for 5 minutes before removing to a rack to completely cool.
OMG are these yummy!
