Nutella Cookie Recipe to Make with Kids
Aren't you just freaking out right about now?!
I’m sort of in love with Nutella, so you can bet that when I came across this recipe, I was all over it! My four-year-old and I made these during her little sister’s nap the other afternoon. Yummy stuff.
What You Need to Make Nutella Cookies
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1 cup flour
- 1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
When I found this recipe on Pinterest, the pinner said not to use the sugar. I wasn’t so sure, so I did a batch with the sugar and a batch without and then had some friends do a taste test. The ones where I left the sugar out were the winners. They were also a bit easier to work with when in “dough” form.
Seriously, you don't need the sugar!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and put your Nutella, egg, and flour in a mixing bowl.
The Nutella cookie ingredients never really got to the point of being like dough. Instead, after running them through the mixer for about a minute, it was more like a shortbread dough.
Roll the Nutella dough into 1" balls, place on a cookie sheet, and flatten. Each of our batches made about 30 cookies.
Bake your Nutella cookies for about 8 minutes. They come out looking a lot like ginger snaps but are softer.
What I Learned the Hard Way: The selflessness of motherhood apparently extends to letting someone else lick the Nutella off the spatula…
