Nutella cookies sound divine, but adding in a touch of cinnamon to the chocolatey goodness just sends it over the top. A basic cookie recipe becomes a very special treat when Nutella and cinnamon chips are added for a special touch. Nutella cookies may just win over chocolate chip cookies!
For this month’s Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Family, Food and Fun written by the lovely Rebekah! If you need cake ideas – Rebekah is your go to gal. She has some of the most beautiful and delicious sounding cakes on her blog. I am not much of a cake baker though so I decided to try Rebekah’s pizza sauce. Then I had a rough week and wanted cookies and Rebekah’s Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies looked perfect. There is something therapeutic about methodically scooping and baking cookies.
As I was getting the dough together, I stumbled on a bag of cinnamon chips which I normally use to make cinnamon chip scones. Cinnamon and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations so I decided to add cinnamon and cinnamon chips to the cookies.
The cookies turned out great even though I had to use cake flour because I was out of all purpose flour. I baked the cookies for about 6-8 minutes in the toaster oven and they turned out nice and soft.
