This weeks Tasty Tuesday happens to be a Passionately Pinterest Pin too! Score!
DO NOT ADD SUGAR! These are the best cookies EVER! 1 cup Nutella, 1 whole egg, 1 cup flour - bake for 6-8 min @ 350 degrees. OMG!!!!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~What Really Happened~~~~~~~~~~~
I decided to go with the original recipe that includes Sugar and I'm so glad I did. These wouldn't be nearly sweet enough without it and weren't really too sweet with the added 1/2 cup of sugar the recipe called for.
So simple with only 4 ingredients.
An electric mixer will work best here. The batter is pretty dry so if you attempt using a hand whisk you'll get one nice old big clump right in the center of the whisk.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls then flatten with the bottom of a glass or bowl.
These do spread out quite a bit so be sure to space them out or you'll have some funky square cookies.
Instead of flouring the bottom of the glass I used a piece of parchment paper which worked great.
Tada! And to add a bit of Christmas some red and green sprinkles!
The recipe didn't call for the extra nutella smear but I thought they needed the extra flavor. They really don't taste like Nutella at all even though there's a cup of it in the recipe.
Let them sit 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Otherwise they'll be way too gooey and will fall apart on you.
So the claim of BEST COOKIES EVER? They are pretty tasty but I wouldn't go quite that far. If they really tasted like Nutella? Then we'd be talking. But for a quick chocolate cookie with minimal ingredients? Not too bad. They'd be great for ice cream sandwiches or with a smear of peanut butter. Mmmm.
