Three ingredient Nutella cookies

On the weekend just gone we had a nice, lazy, indulgent couple of days which included special treats such as pizza takeaway for dinner on Saturday and a pancake dinner on Sunday – We eat quite well normally so it’s nice to have some special treats from time-to-time, especially on a weekend as lovely as the one we were having.

On the Sunday I also did some baking with The Boy. A couple of days beforehand a company that I follow on facebook who do fantastic looking cupcake making classes, Blue Door Bakery, linked to their blog where they shared a recipe for some super simple three ingredient nutella cookies. It was So simple and they looked So nice that we just had to give them a go.

You can see the recipe if you click the link above, but if you want to read it here it’s 1 cup of nutella, 1 cup of self raising flour and 1 large egg. You mix all of the ingredients together, first with a spoon and then finish with your hands. Lastly you roll it into a sausage shape on a floured work service and then cut into slices. The slices are then placed on a lined baking tray and put in an oven pre-heated to 180C for about 10 mins. 

Yup, That simple. Nothing’s quite That simple with a three-year-old ‘helping’ but we did quite well and it wasn’t too horrendous when we finished.

I really wish we’d been able to eat them warm from the oven but we had to eat our lunch before, so they’d cooled. But oh, wow, they’re soo yummy! Here’s some yummy looking pictures to make you want to make them!

You can see the darker inside showing how soft and lovely they stayed inside even when the outside was perfectly cooked.

And, of course, the only person really qualified to give their seal of approval! He really rather enjoyed his. 
I think we’ll be making these again and The Fiance and I have already talked about variations – Using chocolate spread in general to make chocolate cookies could well be the way forward – May make milk chocolate spread with white choc chunks, or chocolate orange spread ones in the future. The possibilities are endless (well, not quite but you know what I mean)
