Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

We are having dinner tomorrow night at our friends' house, so a volunteered to bring dessert.  I asked my boys what they thought I should bring and they both shouted peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!  Good thing I was already planning on making those, obviously I know what my boys' favorite is. :)  Well, as I was making these cookies, I had the thought that maybe this new incredible chocolate hazelnut butter that I had, would work in the recipe.  I didn't want to use it all, because what if it didn't work, and besides, I was enjoying eating it out of the jar with a I halved the recipe, and it still made quite a few cookies.  The hazelnut butter is thiner than the peanut butter, so I increased the flour by a little.  So, here's the modified recipe and my latest addition to our cookie collection:

Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) dairy-free margarine, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream margarine, shortening, hazelnut butter, and sugars.  Add egg and mix well.
2. In a separate bowl, stir together flour blend, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture and mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Drop by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown on edges and just set in middle.  Cool slightly on cookie sheet before removing and placing on wire rack.
