To quote our 4 year old..."Oh my MG!" (Her version of OMG!)
Nutella-Stuffed Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt recipe
2¼ cup all-purpose flour
1¼ teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon of salt
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
1¼ cup packed dark brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon plain greek yogurt (I used sour cream)
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½  cup milk chocolate chips (I used all semi 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips)
1 jar of Nutella, chilled in refrigerator 
Coarse sea salt for sprinkling (You know I love my sea salt!)
  1. In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda, and salt until combined. In a saucepan over medium heat, brown butter and set aside to cool.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in egg, yolk, vanilla, and yogurt until incorporated. Gradually add the dry ingredients until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Place cookie dough in the refrigerator for 2 hours (or longer) to let the flavors meld together.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Roll 1½ tablespoons of dough and sort of flatten the dough ball out and make a bowl like shape.  Place 1 teaspoon of chilled Nutella in the middle then place another flat circle of cookie dough on top. Crimp edges to seal.
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  6. Place dough balls on cookie sheet, 2 inches apart and bake 9-11 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.
  7. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for a minute or two and then move to wire racks to cool completely.
Have a great week...I m off to walk and do pilates after eating these.  Oh well!
