Cookies in a Hurry

Recently we have had enough Girl Scout cookies in the house to feed all of Pittsburgh.  Nonetheless, as good as they are, those cookies don't quite hit the spot like something homemade.  The truth is, sometimes I'm just in the mood for a homemade cookie.  And there's nothing quite as nice as a really quick recipe that doesn't require a lot of ingredients to take care of my cookie craving.

This recipe for Nutella cookies is very different from the last one I passed along (Nutty for Nutella 1/27/11) but very nice as well.  It calls for just four ingredients, all things you are likely to have in the house and is a snap to make.  They're a bit crispier than the other recipe and ground up would also make a delicious crust for a pie or a cheesecake.

Four ingredients and seven minutes to bake.  A lifesaver when you are craving a homemade cookie.

Recipe:  Quick Nutella Cookies
(A Busy Nest, 2011)


1 cup Nutella
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 whole egg

Preheat the oven to 350.

Blend all ingredients together in a bowl.  Form the dough into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Press down firmly with the bottom of a glass until the balls are flatted but still have rounded edges.  Bake for 7-8 minutes or until set.  Cool on wire rack.


  1. Is it that time of year again? I haven't had Girl Scout cookies in ages.

    I'm so loving this recipe Nadine. Even someone as baking challenged as I could probably whip these "babies" up.

    Thank you so much for sharing...

    Just a Note: Sunday Kicks off National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week!!!

  2. It's me again, Nadine. In all my excitement, I got a bit confused. Sunday kicks off National Pancake Week! Chocolate Chip Cookie Week is the 2nd week of March. This year I believe it begins the 13th!

    Sorry for the confusion:)

  3. These sound fabulous. Will make them soon. I'm also a big fan of Month of Edible Celebrations
