Sharing is caring!

These delicious Nutella Cookies are the perfect way to celebrate any day. Made with just a few ingredients, these cookies are soft, chewy and full of Hazelnut goodness.


Not that I need an excuse to bake with Nutella.  I mean, they are not sponsoring this in any way, I just love the taste. You may remember I made those wonderful Nutella Pastries a while back. But this Nutella cookie recipe makes a soft Nutella filled cookie!

Hello Friends!

I hope today finds you well! Today’s recipe is one that I originally developed during my second year of the blog back in the last decade.

I finally took some newer photos so that you could better see what the cookies actually look like as I first published these in 2012. I made these the other day as part of the Good Cookie Food Bloggers Event for childhood cancer. More about this below and you can see an original photo at the end of this page from my early blog years. 

I have also updated the recipe a tad and now it is perfect!

One thing to note is that when the cookies are popped out of the oven, they will have a little puff to it.

One they have a moment to set, they will have some crinkles, making it a wonderful chewy piece of hazelnut goodness.

Here is an example of the difference in cookies that just came out of the oven, and those that have set.

Let me just say these are SO GOOD! They are soft, chewy, and filled with hazelnut bliss. It is best to let then cool just a bit, but these are truly wonderful.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • Prepare the dry ingredients ahead of time and it will be so quick to make this recipe. This is a recipe that I developed after several attempts at making the perfect Nutella cookie. This is not a sponsored post, I just love the taste of Nutella
  • Use your clean hands to mix the dough, it will be better blended and the cookies will come out consistently.
  • I do not recommend using parchment paper for the baking sheets. There is enough butter/oil in the cookies to allow them to release from the pan easily.

Nutella cookie dough

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Drop by round teaspoons on a greased or dark cookie sheet.  I do not recommend using parchment paper for this recipe so that the cookies can better spread. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S. There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. The National Cancer Institute’s budget for childhood cancer is less than 4%. It’s such a small number and that’s why I got involved in this food blogger event.

Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies:  OXOMediavine  amd Dixie Crystals have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000! That means when we raise $1, it turns into $4!

Thank you to so many of you who have already donated, please help us reach our goal so we can get the full matching donations and help us make an even huge difference!
