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 tablespoon of nutella
- Mix flour and sugar
- Cut butter into small cubes and mix wih the flour/sugar mixture.
- Add the egg
- Roll the dough together and let it rest in the refrigerator for a minimum of one hour
- Divide the dough into two, leave one roll in the fridge, and roll the other one out on the kitchen table.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (200 C)
- Use a glass to cut out circles from the rolled out dough.
- Put the circles on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
- Dip a bit of Nutella jam in the middle of each circle.
- Make additional circles, and put the other squares on top of the jam.
- Squeeze the sides of the circles with a fork.
- Bake at 375 degrees F (200 C) for about 15 minutes
- Put on a baking rack to cool
- Once the Nutella cookies have cooled, glaze with the glazing and add sprinkles.
My kids love these Nutella cookies, and we will definitely be making them again.
