Delicious Nutella Filled Oatmeal Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies


Ingredients

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature

1 cup dark brown sugar

⅓ cup white sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon kosher salt

3 cups rolled oats

8 oz. dark chocolate, chopped

¾ cup hazelnuts, toasted and chopped

½ cup Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut butter)

Flaky sea salt, optional but recommended

Directions

In a large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar, until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended, and then add the vanilla extract.

Combine the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Add into the butter mixture and beat until just combined.

Fold in chocolate chunks and hazelnuts. Chill cookie dough, covered, for at least one hour or up to three days.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and fill each cookie dough ball with about 1 teaspoon of Nutella. You can do this by flattening the dough and pressing it around the Nutella, or using a cookie scoop, make an indentation in the middle of the dough, place the Nutella in the indentation, and then cover with more cookie dough. Form the dough into balls and arrange about 3 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Sprinkle cookies with flaky sea salt, if desired. Bake cookies for 12 minutes, or until just pale golden brown. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes and transfer to racks to cool completely.

INGREDIENTS
1 c. brown sugar

¼ c. finely chopped pecans

2 tbsp. unsalted butter

1 tbsp. Chinese five-spice powder

1 good quality cooked ham

2 medium onions

DIRECTIONS

Delicious Bacon Wrapped Turkey


Author: Something New For Dinner

Prep time: 30 mins Cook time: 3 hours 30 mins Total time: 4 hours

 

This bacon wrapped turkey is every bit as incredible as it looks. It is fun to make and one of the easiest, most flavorful and moist turkeys I have ever made. No stuffing, no brining, just a little jacket weaving. I encourage you to try this turkey!

Ingredients

4 garlic cloves

½ pound butter, room temperature

1 large handful mixed fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, parsley, sage)

1½ pound thick cut bacon, divided

3 carrots, peeled and cut into 3″ pieces

3 leeks, cleaned and cut into 3″ pieces

2 stalks celery, cut into 3″ pieces

1 onion, quartered

2 apple, sliced peels on

1 14-pound turkey

Kosher salt and pepper

Instructions

For the bacon butter

Place oven shelf in bottom of the oven. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Put the garlic cloves in a food processor and whirl to finely mince. Add herbs and briefly pulse to chop. Add butter and ½ pound of bacon and pulse to combine.

To prepare the turkey

Remove the neck, gizzards, liver, pop-up thermometer and assorted parts that come with your turkey and discard, unless you use these for gravy. Slide your hands between the turkey and the skin to separate. Work your hands all the way around the turkey so that the skin is separates from the flesh.

Take half of the compounded bacon-herb butter and spread it all around underneath the turkey skin. Rub the remaining butter compound over the skin, giving the turkey a good butter-bacon massage. Season with salt and pepper.

To weave the bacon jacket

Start by wrapping the drumsticks. Begin at the back to the drumstick and wind the bacon around trying to slightly overlap each piece until each drumstick is covered.

Place a horizontal strip of bacon across the breast just below the neck hole. Now place a vertical strip of bacon on the far right of the bird, going from the neck end towards the bottom of the bird.

Alternate weaving horizontal strips and vertical strips until the entire top of the turkey is covered in the jacket. Take care to slightly overlap each strip. Using some kitchen string, tie the legs of the bird together.

To cook the turkey

Place an oven rack in the bottom of the oven and remove all the top racks. Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Scatter the carrots, leeks, celery, onion and apples in the bottom of a roasting pan. Place a roasting rack on top of the vegetables and place the turkey on top of the rack.

Roast for 30 minutes at 450 degrees and then reduce heat to 375 degrees. Watch the bacon and as soon as it begins to darken cover with tin foil, usually in the first 30 minutes. Cook the turkey until its internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, about 15 minutes per pound or about 3½ hours total for a 14 pound bird.

When turkey reaches 155 to 160 degrees, remove from the oven and let rest for 30 minutes before serving. The turkey will continue to cook while resting and the internal temperature will rise to 165 degrees. Always use a thermometer to safely determine when the turkey is done.
