Easy Nutella Cookies

These easy Nutella cookies came be made in 20 minutes or less, including baking time.  They are that easy!  I love Nutella, a hazelnut chocolate spread.  I've seen several online recipes for Nutella cookies and I adapted this recipe from Kirbie's Cravings.  I used whole wheat flour instead and made about 14 cookies.  You must try this easy Nutella cookies recipe next time you are in a pinch to make cookies.  The cookies are nice and soft in the middle with a light crisp edge.  Absolutely delicious! 

Easy Nutella Cookies

½ cup and 1 tablespoon flour (I used whole wheat.)
1 egg
1 cup Nutella
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, egg and Nutella with a spoon.  Stir until dough comes together and no lumps of flour remain.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Make dough balls about 1 to 1 ½ inch in diameter.  Place on baking sheets, spaced about 2 inches apart.

Press lightly on dough so the dough balls are like round disks.  Smooth edges so you have thick round smooth disks.

Bake for about 10 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool on cooling rack.

Makes at least 1 dozen cookies.
