Nutella Stuffed Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

2-1/4 cup flour
1-1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
1-1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar (I hadlight it worked fine)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 TBS plain greek yogurt or sour cream
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 jar Nutella (or about 24 tsp)
Coarse sea salt for sprinkling, optional

1.  Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. The butter will begin to foam. Make sure you whisk consistently during this process. After a couple of minutes, the butter will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan; continue to whisk and remove from heat as soon as the butter begins to brown and give off a nutty aroma. Immediately transfer the butter to a bowl to prevent burning. Set aside to cool for a few minutes. 
2.  Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.With an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Beat in the egg, yolk, vanilla, and yogurt until combined. Add the dry ingredients slowly and beat on low-speed just until combined. Gently fold in all of the chocolate chips.
3.  Chill your dough for 2hours in the refrigerator. Place teaspoonfuls of nutella on waxed paper or parchment paper and place in refrigerator for the time your dough is chilling.
4.  Preheat the oven to 350℉. Once dough is chilled measure about 1-1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Flatten the dough ball very thinly into the palm of your hand. Place 1 teaspoon of chilled nutella in the middle and fold dough around it; gently roll into a ball — it doesn’t have to be perfectly rolled!Make sure that the nutella is not seeping out of the dough. Add more dough if necessary. Place dough balls on cookie sheet, 2 inches apart and flatten with your hand VERY gently.

5.  Bake the cookies 9-11 minutes or until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown. They will look a bit underdone in the middle, but will continue to cook once out of the oven. Cool the cookies on the sheets at least 2 minutes.Sprinkle with a little sea salt if desired. Remove the cooled cookies from the baking sheets after a few minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.Repeat with remaining dough.

These make great chocolate chip cookies without the Nutella also
