Third day of our Valentines treats, I’ve decided to cheat and go for an exceedingly simple cookie recipe using everyone’s favourite (except someones partner who shall remain nameless) Nutella!
Turns out that Sophie hides a jar at the back of the cupboard, unlucky for her I now know her hiding place!
- 70g plain flour
- 1 large egg
- 275g Nutella
- 60g smashed hazelnuts
Measure each item out and then throw into a bowl, mix together with a wooden spoon. I kept it close to the hob that was cooking dinner to heat the nutella slightly to help it blend better. Using hazelnuts increased the taste and adds a nice crunch.
Once combined you just spoon it out in equal measures onto a baking sheet (don’t do Sophie’s trick, make sure the paper is the right way up)
You can smoosh them down but I like my cookies gooey in the middle so leave them quite thick. Into the oven at 180 or gas mark 4 for about 10-15 mins. (Our oven takes ages so we always almost double the time)
Pull them out of the oven when they are still slightly gooey and transfer to a wire tray for cooling, they will go hard as they cool.
Throw onto a plate and you’re done! Only 1 bowl to wash, a spoon and reuse the baking parchment! Simple!
Not sure what Sophie has for tomorrow but make sure you check it out as im sure it will be delicious.
