Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies - total time 2 hours

It is important while eating healthy not to deprive yourself of the foods you truly love.  That doesn't mean go crazy and eat a whole package of Oreos, but a few once and a while will help satisfy your craving and keep you on track (although Oreos might not be the best with all of the preservatives and trans fats, but that is not the point).

We love cookies in our house, I mean LOVE!  I actually don't care for cake, pie, candy, or many other traditional desserts.  I like ice cream, but only in the summer.  Since cookies are really our dessert of choice, we have become cookie "aficionados" over the years.  Really picky about our cookies!  But this one takes the cake, I mean, cookie.

1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
.5 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 egg
2 tbsp creme fraiche (or sour cream)
1 tsp baking soda
.5 cup dark chocolate
.5 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1 tsp salt
1 cup Nutella

1.  Melt butter over medium-low heat in pot for about five minutes or until browned (it will have a nutty aroma).  Allow butter to cool down by stir in your mixer.  Once cooled, add both sugars and mix well.
2.  Add vanilla, egg, and creme fraiche into mixer and blend.  Add baking soda and salt.  Start adding a small amount of flour at a time allowing the blender to completely incorporate until adding more flour.
3.  Fold in the chocolate chips, wrap in plastic, and allow the dough to cool in refridgerator for at least one hour.
4.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Shape dough into disks about two inches in diameter.  Scoop about 1 teaspoon of Nutella onto each doughy disk and then fold into ball (this part can get a little messy, but that's okay!).
5.  Place cookie dough on baking sheet and bake for about 11 minutes or until cookies start to brown on top.  Enjoy warm or room temperature, either way there is gooey goodness inside!
