Hello my name is Whitney

And I am addicted to Nutella

"Hello Whitney" If they had a nutella anonymous meeting I would go, heck I might even be the president. I have been thinking about other ways I can consume massive amounts of Nutella (besides out of the jar, with a spoon in the middle of the night.) Everyone in my little family loves Nutella, even Audrey has helped her self to some.

Last week while I was supposed to be working I had the idea of making a Nutella cookie. I mean Nutella has many of the same qualities as peanut butter, it should work. And it did. So if you love Nutella (of course you do who doesn't!) try out these cookies. Or just let me make some for you and we can have a cookie party.

Nutella Cookies


  • 1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1 cup of Nutella
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup of chopped hazelnuts (optional)

1. Cream butter until fluffy (about 2 minutes.)
2. Add the sugars and the Nutella and mix well scrapping the sides of the bowl.
3. Add the eggs 1 at a time and beat for 30 seconds each. Then add the Vanilla.
4. In a small mixing bowl sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
5. Mix into the Nutella/sugar mixture and then add the hazelnuts.
6. Chill for 10 minutes.
7. Spoon tablespoon-sized drops of dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheets for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Dust with powered sugar if you'd like.

P.S. these are super yummy warmed up with ice cream.
