Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the many dangers for me is Nutella.  I try and avoid buying it at all costs...mostly because I will eat the whole jar.  It is very hard for me not to.  But then I walk into Smith's and see the Kroger brand of Nutella and it is much les $$$ that I cannot resist.  And then Picky Palate posts about these cookies...

...and I HAVE TO make them.  Simple.  Chocolate Chip Cookies and Nutella...and they are soooo good!  They are soft and the perfect...ooey...gooey...and one is enough unless you are a crazy Nutella person...then two or three will do.

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 jar Nutella 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.  In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.  Flatten the top of the dough and make a little depression and spoon in some Nutella. However much you want...a lot of a little. :) 
Take another scoop of dough and place on top. Seal edges together by pressing until Nutella is enclosed with dough. Bake cookies for 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Enjoy!!!
