I decided that I wanted to do some baking but didn’t want to make anything to complicated so after a little while spent on Pinterest I decided on cookies and came across these Nutella ones, now I love Nutella and love cookies so win win for me!

The original recipe can be found here at the Tasty Kitchen  they are made with only 4 ingredients and ready in under 30 minutes, now that is what you call quick.

Ingredients:

  • 235g of Nutella
  • 1 Egg
  • 120g plain flour + two extra tablespoons
  • Sea Salt

The original recipe states it makes 6, however I got 12 out of this and feel that they are all of a good size and consistency.

Heat the oven to 180 c (350 f, gas mark 4) and line a baking tray with baking paper

With an electric mixer, mix the Nutella, egg and flour together until it makes a dough

Place the bowl of dough into the freezer for 10 mins

Once the dough is chilled, scoop out 1 inch size balls and place on your baking tray around 1 inch apart

Sprinkle with a tiny bit of sea salt

Place the unbaked cookies back in the freezer for 2 minutes

I flattened mine down slightly using a fork as I had seen that in other recipes and I was worried that they would be too thick but they do flatten out quite a bit when they are cooking so it’s probably not necessary.

Bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes, take them out earlier if you like a sticky cookie.  Take out, let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and enjoy.
