Nutella Surprise Cookies / Molten Center Cookies

Winters and Baking are quiet synonymous! Love the smell of  freshly baked cake or hot n crisp cookies, just out of the oven ......Ummm...
And with the Christmas festivities around...its time to fill up cookie jars to enjoy the winter chills with a hot cuppa Coffee and crumbly cookies and cakes !

I love the taste and flavour of Nutella , but I choose not to dilute the delicate flavour with chocolate or coffee....Not that it does not tase good...but I love to devour every bit of the delicate hazelnut flavour that nutella offers...
Using nutella as it is was a challenge,considering the runny nature of the spread....
So I dropped spoonfulls of nutella over a foil and put them in deep freeze for about 30 mins..
And used them to stuff my cookies......
So heres a Nutella Surprise ...... soft cookies with mushy nutella center!

1 Cup Maida / All purpose flour
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Nutella

Drop spoonful of nutella on a foil and freeze it for 30 mins or till they solidify.
My frozen nutella drops!

Sieve maida with baking powder and mix it with sugar.
Add melted butter and rub them with finger tips with flour.
Add lightly beaten egg and mix till you get a thick semi solid dough. Add milk if the batter or dough is too solid.
The cookie dough...just the correct consistency!

Grease palms with oil and flatten the batter on the palms. Take out one nutella drop at a time from the freezer  and place over the dough and seal it with the remaining dough.
Stuffing nutella into the dough...a delicate task!

Place stuffed dough over a greased baking tray.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg C for 15 to 20 mins , until the cookie crust just browns.
 It should be light brown. Do not overbake the cookies . They are slightly soft. Overbaking might burn the stuffed nutella.
Umm,cant wait to grab a to dunk in coffee!

Cool a bit and serve.
These cookies can also be stored in airtight jar for a week or so,...thats only if you and your family resists these tempting goodies!
