This recipe is going on the top of my cookie recipe pile!
These are the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. And they are good. As in super rich, fudgy in the middle, good. As in you can whip these up, give them to your friends and pretend you labored over them for a few hours, when in actuality they took about 15 minutes, including baking time. Yup, honestly only takes 5 minutes to prepare, and 10 minutes to bake. Couldn’t get any easier!
Oh, and did I mention it’s only 4 ingredients?
I’ve seen a few of the Nutella cookie recipes floating around the blogosphere recently. I just read a few (and read their mistakes!) and adapted the recipe. Luckily for me, it turned out perfectly on the first try!
(makes 24 cookies)
1 1/4 cups flour
2 cups of Nutella
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350F. Combine flour, egg and Nutella in a large bowl and mix together with a spoon until dough comes together and no flour lumps remain. Stir in chocolate chips until evenly mixed into the dough.
- Make dough balls, about 1 1/2 inch in diameter. Place on cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Press down slightly on dough so the dough balls are more like very very thick round disks rather than perfectly round balls. Smooth edges that may have cracked from the pressure of pushing down on the balls, so that you have thick round smooth disks.
- Bake for about 10 minutes. Cookies should be mostly set, but might be slightly still soft in the middle. Let cookies cool on rack until completely set. Enjoy while still slightly warm or after completely cooled.
I didn’t even wait for them to cool off after they came out of the oven – which really is the best time to eat them anyway (gooey richness!). They are truly delicious cookies.
I served them to some friends and they were almost completely gone by the end of the evening.
Somehow, eating an entire jar of Nutella doesn’t seem so bad in cookie form…
Go try them for yourself!
