Chocolate Flowers Cookies

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!
