Nutella Cookies

I can't emphasise enough what a big fan of Pinterest I am! I know I could easily spend all day browsing cute and creative pins from around the world... Recently, I came across a recipe originally from Tastykitchen.com.

However, I tried a different approach and followed the advice of pinner Paula Wetzel that suggested we should drop the sugar... Well, the result was a super tasty and light cookie, easy to make with the kids and fun to shape as well, even when you don't have moulds!

You will need

Ingredients:
200g of Nutella (a full small cup)
200g of all purpose flour
1 x whole egg

Kitchenware:
A large bowl
Non sticky grease proof paper 
Baking tray

Preparing time: 15 minutes

How to:
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until you get an almost even pastry. Make little balls (1 spoon full) and flatten the pastry using the palm of your hand or a glass to assist you. I found it very easy to make heart and star-shaped forms out of it. 

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Cover the tray with the grease proof paper, place your cookies and put in the oven to bake for about 10 minutes or a little longer if you like them crunchier. 

Note: Don't forget to leave at least 1cm between the cookies. Wait until they cool down to serve. This recipe will make 10 large cookies.
