nutella cookies

When I found out that my it was my oldest son’s best friend’s birthday, I decided to make a special treat for the kids. I turned on the water sprinkler in the garden, so they could cool down, and then I served delicious Nutella cookies. The Nutella cookies were a hit, and the only problem were that I had not made nearly enough.

If you read my strawberry cookie recipe from last week, you will recognize the recipe, as I used the same recipe and steps. You can find the strawberry cookie recipe under Frugal Baking at the Frugality tab in the top navigation bar.

  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg

  • Nutella

  • 1 tablespoon of nutella



  1. Mix flour and sugar
  2. Cut butter into small cubes and mix wih the flour/sugar mixture.

  5. Divide the dough into two, leave one roll in the fridge, and roll the other one out on the kitchen table.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F  (200 C)
  7. Use a glass to cut out circles from the rolled out dough.
  8. Put the circles on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
  9. Dip a bit of Nutella jam in the middle of each circle.
  10. Make additional circles, and put the other squares on top of the jam.

  1. Yum, my daughter is going to love these cookies. I am going to Pin it so I can share it w/others. Thanks.

  2. These look great!

  3. I’ve never purchased Nutella because I just thought of it as a spread for bread and “chocolate sandwiches” didn’t sound good to me. I can totally see it in these cookies, though!

  4. These look delicious. A bit like shortbread with nutella. You are quite the baker!! I love to bake, but I can’t eat much food like this anymore or I put on the pounds so fast.
