Tuesdays at the Table - Nutella Filled Sugar Cookie Cups

Happy Tuesday!  Or in my case, "OMG, I leave for my first vacation in a decade tomorrow...time to stress"! Seriously. You could all scrape me off the ceiling right now.  You know; after I finish a very long to-do list.

Friday our office celebrated National Desert Day.  I loved seeing (and tasting) all the yummy things my co-workers brought in!  It was all so good.

I made these little bites.  It was my first time making them and I think they were a hit with everyone!

Nutella Filled Sugar Cookie Cups

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease mini muffin pan.
Stir together dry ingredients and set aside. Cream together butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually add in dry ingredients.

Roll dough into walnut sized balls and place them in the muffin pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Let cool for one minute then take a tsp measuring spoon and press down making an intention on each cookie.

1/2 cup semi-sweet (or dark) chocolate chips
1/3 cup cream
1/4 cup Nutella

Heat slowly in a small saucepan or microwave safe dish and stir until all ingredients are incorperated and smooth.  Fill each sugar cookie cup with ganache and allow to set before serving.
