~Happy Memorial Day~
Just hanging with my wonderful family today, my hubbie is getting the pool together, cleaned out and all for the summer season. Later on we will be cooking on the grill, the first of the season, I so love grilled food, there is nothing like that grilled taste! Enjoy your family today!
Pamela's Heavenly Treats had its first link party DESSERTS only, Heavenly Treats Sunday #1 Linky Party, add your scrumptious dessert.
~Week 3 of my New Beginnings, I have lost 6 lbs, my eating habits have changed and I exercise every night with my hubbie, it is a powerful workout, but I don't give up. On the weekend when my hubbie is at work, I jump on the elliptical for 30 minutes and rest on Sunday, I am striving to lose 50 lbs, I know I can do it, I am so excited for this change in my life~
Day 1 ~ Nutella Week, when I found out what Nutella was I was thinking how did I not know about this, to me it tastes like a little bit of heaven! Today we have Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies / Sandwich Cookies, I am so glad I made these, another quick and easy recipe, the entire family loved them, they got a thumbs up, I also made these cookies for my monthly donation to Hospice in my town (they were a hit); the best part is you can eat them single or as a cookie sandwich, all you need is a glass of milk and you will really have a heavenly experience! I saw this recipe over at Megan's Cookin and I just tweaked it to make it a little healthier.
1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup nutella
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup of chocolate chips
Set oven to 350
Cream butter and sugar in a mixer on high speed, scraping the sides of the bowl often.
Beat until light and fluffy.
With the mixer on low, add the egg and vanilla.
Add the Nutella and mix well.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix on low speed until all the ingredients are incorporated the dough is smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop into balls and place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes
Let cookies cool about 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
You can leave the cookies singles, or spread about a teaspoon or so on the flat side of half the cookies, and top with another cookie to make a Nutella Cookie Sandwich.
