Super easy Nutella cookies

One of my bigger determining factors for if I’m going to make a recipe is if the ingredients are already in my house. So when I came across this recipe for Nutella cookies that only has four ingredients, I knew it would come in handy. Sure enough, I busted this baby out to make for my students with the end of year craziness. It was easy enough that I went from start to finish in about 30 minutes, including cleanup!

Sifting flour. Always important, but especially in this recipe.

Stir thoroughly. I don’t recommend doing it by hand, it was tough.

Make the dough into small balls with a mini-scoop or by hand.

Using the bottom of a glass, press down the dough so it’s flat – these won’t really rise in the oven.

Check out those cookies! They were so good I didn’t manage to get a picture before my husband got into them.

I updated the recipe from one originally found here.

Nutella cookies

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup nutella
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 or 2 eggs*
Steps:
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Combine eggs, sugar, and Nutella. Then add flour. An electric mixer is way easier than hand mixing in this case.
  • Make 1″ balls with a scoop or by hand. Once they’re laid out, use a flat-bottomed glass to press down the balls into cookie shape.
  • Cook for 7-8 minutes, until edges look crispy. I prefer the cookies on the crispy end, so I did them more like 8 1/2 minutes.

* Probably, you only need one. When struggling to stir by hand, I added a second one for some more stickiness to bring the ingredients together. It worked – possibly, the cookies were a bit chewier than they would’ve been otherwise without the second egg.

The verdict: good. Students liked them and my husband loved them – I didn’t even get to finish letting them cool before he’d gotten into them!

Enjoy!
