I signed up for this year’s Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap and received my matches right before I went home for Thanksgiving. I had all intentions of doing a little something with the extra nutella I had hanging out in my cabinet from a previous recipe.
But all of those plans went out the window when I had my slight hiccup. I did the next best thing and found a simple but yummy recipe that involved nutella! Thanks to Tasty Kitchen for coming to the rescue.
While I was home at my mom’s for Thanksgiving, I baked them and sent them off. I used four simple ingredients.
- 1-½ cups nutella
- ¾ cups Sugar
- 1-½ cups All-purpose Flour
- 1-½ whole Egg
Yes, that sounds weird, but it made exactly 36 cookies (okay, maybe a little more for testers)! I blended all of the ingredients together, formed them into balls, and flattened them on the cookie sheet before baking them at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
They were crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside. They were not super sweet, but you could definitely taste the nutella!
After they cooled, I had to decide what tins I was going to send them off in.
My mom had a bunch at home, but I also picked up the 3 red snowflake ones while I was out in case the other ones were not big enough. I decided to go with those in the end!
I have to say, packing them wasn’t pretty! I used a lot of wax paper to secure them in there. I didn’t want any breakage in the shipping process. Anyway, hopefully Jennifer, Brigitt, and Mads enjoy them!
