Chocolate & Nutella Cookies

Seriously, who doesn't love Nutella? I just spent an entire month without Nutella, and believe me, I was glad to come back home and spread some on a good slice of fresh bread. A couple months ago, I bought a cookbook entirely about Nutella, with 30 recipes going from simple 'tartines' to cakes and 'crèmes brûlées'. Today, for the first time, I did one of these recipes, and the result is not that bad.

(for 12 cookies according to the book, 23 according to me)

250g of flour
1/2 pack of baking powder
125g of white sugar
125g of cane sugar
A wee bit of salt
100g of butter
50g of Nutella
1 egg
1 pack of vanilla-flavoured sugar
100g of chocolate chips
Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugars, and salt) and put it aside. Melt the butter and the Nutella, then pour them on the dry mix. Add the egg and mix well (not with a mixer, with your arm, yes, like old times). Add the chocolate chips and mix with a wooden spoon.
If possible, put the dough in the fridge for an hour. Just enough time to watch an episode of Bunheads or the Olympics.
Preheat the oven at 240°C (464°F). Put baking paper on your baking tray. Make balls of dough with your hands and place them on the baking tray. Press with your fingers to stretch and widen them. Do not put too many cookies and make them stick together; I did two batches, so that there would be enough space between them.
Let them cook for 8 to 10 minutes (depending on the heat in your oven, they might burn pretty quickly). Get them out of the oven and place your cookies on a shelf (like the one on the picture) and let them cool.
