Nutella Blossom Cookies

It is not uncommon for my roommates and I to get a sudden urge to bake cookies. In fact, this seems to be a weekly occurrence.

This week, Roommate had his heart set on baking something with Nutella. We had a jar of it in the cabinet, and knowing Roommate all too well, I was sure it was expired. And it was!

This tragedy was quickly resolved by Roommate buying a mega pack of Nutella at Costco.

And thus began a four-night streak of nutella blossoms, during which we baked two separate batches and probably collectively gained 90 pounds from all of the shortening.

Worth it.
