Recipe by BecR2400
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 36 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, cream sugars with the butter, shortening and 1/2 cup nutella.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Add coffee granules, mix well.
  • In a medium bowl, blend the flour, baking soda, and salt with a wire whisk.
  • Add chocolate chips and ground nuts to the flour mixture. Stir well.
  • Add flour mixture to the butter mixture, stir just until blended.
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls (I use a cookie scoop) two inches apart onto greased cookie sheets.
  • Gently press a whole hazelnut into the center of each cookie.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes. With a spatula transfer warm cookies to rack to finish cooling.
  • Once cooled, drizzle melted 1/4 cup nutella mixed with 2 teaspoons of water over tops of cookies, if desired. Cool completely.
  • Note: May be stored in an air tight container, with parchment paper between layers. These cookies freeze well.
