Ok, ok, wipe the drool off your mouth. I know when I found this recipe on Tuesday afternoon that it took everything I had not to dive into the computer and attempt to eat one. Just seeing “Nutella” in a recipe title is enough to keep my attention, so I won’t waste any time.
Nutella Cookies, taken from here
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup AP flour
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350F.
Beat sugar with egg first. Add flour. Then add Nutella.
WARNING: Your batter will be crumbly and you will think you made a mistake. I know I did. I added some water to the batter just to make it workable. This batter was much too dry to hold a shape.
Roll them into 1 inch balls and flatten them with the back of a glass. Bake for 9-10 minutes.
The cookies on the left had water added to the batter. The cookies to the right did not. They tasted the same but the drier batter made for more crumbly cookies.
I hate to say it, but I wasn’t ALL that impressed. However, Dennis and my co-workers really liked them. One of my co-workers said he thought it was be a good breakfast cookie because it’s not too sweet and would pair well with coffee.
Don’t be afraid to try these just because I didn’t care for them. I don’t like peanut butter cookies but I love peanut butter, so I’m not a good judge here. If you like Nutella, give these a try. It’s a simple recipe that takes no time at all, and you probably already have everything in your pantry. We always have Nutella on hand, but if you don’t, it’s pretty cheap and available everywhere.
I’m not done working with Nutella though. My mom’s coming into town this weekend…I might have something up my sleeve.
Have you tried baking with Nutella?
