{Chocolate, Seasalt & Nutella Sandwich Cookies}

The name of these cookies alone is a bit of a mouthful so its no surprise that so are they, even me a cookie munching professional with the waistline to prove it could not eat two of these babies back to back. 

They sent the kids into some kind of chocolate induced delirium but then that's not hard during the holidays and when the kids are driving me mad (which I might also add is not a long drive during the holidays)I retreat to the kitchen, calmly tie my apron and bake whilst listening to some gentle chit chat on the radio.  

It's all good until the cookies are cooled and I feed the delicious results of my own version of time out to the children which in a cruel irony makes them even more feral.  As I stand back and survey their destruction I come to the conclusion that I wouldn't of wanted to miss out on tasting these cookies, they are delicious. Make that crazy delicious.

...the cookies
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/2 cup dutch cocoa
1/4 cup oats, lightly ground
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
180g butter, room temperature
2 tbsp nutella
1 1/4 sugar
1 egg
sea salt

...fill with
400g jar of nutella {minus the 2 tbsp's above}

Heat oven to 190. Line your baking tray or trays with baking paper.

Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, oats, baking soda, and baking powder then set aside. Cream the butter, nutella, and sugar until light and fluffy, add in the egg and mix til combined.

Next add in the dry ingredients and mix until evenly incorporated. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls, pop on your baking tray, leaving lots of room for spread and flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass (I dipped my glass bottom in cocoa as the mix is quite sticky)sprinkle with a little sea salt.

Bake for 8 minutes. Cool for 1 minute on the baking tray and then carefully transfer to a rack. Allow to cool completely before joining them up in pairs using nutella {makes 18}.
