Nutella Stuffed Avocado Cookies

This recipe is a great combination, especially if you don't want an overly sweet cookie. The avocado tones it down while the Nutella, along with the sugar on the outside, give it the right amount of sweetness.

Ingredients
  

Refrigerated and Dairy

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened

Baking, Spices and Condiments

  • 1 whole avocado
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup sugar, powdered
  • 1/4 cup sugar, granulated for rolling the cookies in before baking

Instructions
 

  • Make the filling.
    In a bowl, combine Nutella and powdered sugar, then mix together until smooth. Use a 1 inch scoop to make into balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in freezer.
  • Make the cookies.
    In a bowl, combine avocado, vanilla, butter and brown sugar. Mix on medium speed until fully blended. Add in baking soda, salt and flour and mix on medium speed until combined. Don't over blend.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Scoop the cookie dough and flatten like a pancake. Roughly 2×2 inches. Place a frozen Nutella ball on top and fold the dough up to wrap around the frozen ball of Nutella. Make sure it's completely sealed by rolling it into a ball between your two palms. Add more cookie dough if needed to fully cover frozen ball. (This mixture is sticky so I sprayed my fingers with cookie spray to keep it from sticking).
  • Place granulated sugar in a small bowl, roll the stuffed cookie dough balls in the sugar and place on a cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until the cookies are golden, 12-15 minutes. Eat up and Enjoy!
