4 Ingredient Nutella Cookies

Posted on

Hello friends!

Since receiving my amazing pistachio Kitchen Aid mixer, I have done a dismal amount of baking. So recently, Andy spoke up. He bought me the mixer so I could bake and make him tasty treats! And, to reclaim my title as “awesome girlfriend,” I decided to find a quick and delicious recipe to try.

Searching on Pinterest and among my favorite cooking blogs, I found this little gem: Nutella Cookies, originally posted by The {Mr.} & the {Mrs.}. An easy choice, since Nutella is pretty much manna from the Gods. Recipe and my thoughts follow!

Mmm. So delicious. The recipe made about 25 cookies. They’re not very big but the pack a lot of flavor into a small package.

Gotta love 4 ingredient recipes. You’ll have just enough Nutella left over to finish the jar off with a spoon (or a finger).

They don’t get much bigger after they’ve baked, they just lose a little of that “encased in sugar” look.

 

Nutella Cookies

  • 1 cup Nutella (basically a whole 13oz jar)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • sugar for rolling
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Blend Nutella, flower and the egg together well.
  3. Roll into 1” balls, coating in sugar.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Press down firmly with a fork the way you would with peanut butter cookies.
  6. Bake 7-8 minutes or until set. Unless you know your oven to be cooler than usual, take them out after no more than 8 minutes. They might seem under cooked, but they’re not.
  7. Let cool for 10 minutes.

I found these to be a little dry when rolling, but the warmth from your hands will help for the most part. If they’re too dry, it can help to add a tsp of milk at a time until the mix is a better consistency. Be careful though – you want it to be dough-like, not mushy.

The original recipe from Tasty Kitchen actually has you put a 1/2 cup of sugar into the mixture instead of on top of it, but I actually really enjoyed it this way. More fun to make, too.

These took about 25 minutes from mixer to mouth. Okay, maybe the first one was a little too hot in my mouth, but it was so worth it.
