Nutella cookies

Allison got to witness my obsession with Nutella take shape... first it was a spoonful of the delicious spread... and then it became a spoonful of nutella with some peanut or almond butter... so I figured - why not take that combo and bake cookies? And really, if they hadn't worked out - no biggie. Sometimes mistakes are best dunked in cold milk...

I'm also going to make these into ice cream sandwiches - bake them and fill them with some vanilla ice cream - nothing wrong with that! ... and Allison - they're even gluten free - so you'll be able to enjoy the fruits of my labour :0)

1/3 cup nutella (pretty much an entire small jar of the stuff)
1/3 cup almond butter
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup brown sugar
1 egg white
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup white chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl (no need for fancy mixers - a wooden spoon will do).

Bake for 12 minutes on a tray lined with wax paper. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for about 5 minutes.

Remove from tray and allow to cool on a rack.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
