After making those delicious chewy Nutella cookies, I had this sudden urge to make a Nutella sugar cookie because the chewy cookies looked a little bit like sugar cookies.

I played around with some sugar recipes. I wanted to make these chewier and flatter, so I used some brown sugar and a lot of Nutella.

I loved how perfectly round and flat these cookies were after baking. They were puffy initially, but sank back down after they cooled. It was just the look I was going for.

The cookies were chewy, sweet, with a light taste of Nutella.

Nutella Sugar Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen


2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of Nutella


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, Nutella and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll dough into balls about one inch in diameter and place onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Using palm of hand, flatten cookie balls into round discs.

3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cookies finish cooling before removing from cookie sheet.

      I couldn’t decide which one I like better.This one or the chewy chocolate chip Nutella cookies. Both are good!

    Yum! Better stock up on Nutella. Maybe I will want to buy enough Nutella to justify renewing the Costco membership…

    1 cup of nutella! YES! These cookies sound like winner so me :)

      Yeah I was worried. But I kept adding more to the dough and it seemed okay. And as justification, it does make a lot of cookies.

    Very nice! i have so much Nutella at home (Costco coupon) waiting to be used! love the look of these cookies too. i don’t really like sugar cookies but if Nutella is in them, that’s a different story.

      They don’t taste as much like sugar cookies with the addition of Nutella. I hope you like them!

    As if sugar cookies weren’t good enough on their own, adding Nutella makes them irresistible! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

      I agree!

    Mmmm! I’m convinced – anything made with a cup of Nutella has got to be good!

    • Kirbie replied: — January 11th, 2012 @ 10:04 pm

      I agree =)

    I’m showing your website to ALL my friends. If I could I’d even make fliers and give them out to random people because every recipe you make is so good. <3 keep up the wonderful work.

      Aw, that’s so nice of you to say! Thanks!

    I bet my little girl would love to use her new set of cookie cutters for this recipe…The eating, we both will definitely enjoy! Thanks for sharing a great cookie recipe.

    • Kirbie replied: — January 11th, 2012 @ 10:04 pm

      I’m not sure if this recipe would work with cookie cutter. It’s more of a drop cookie recipe, but you could try.

    Those sound way tasty! I want to try them with both Nutella and Biscoff (my new spread obsession).

    • Kirbie replied: — January 16th, 2012 @ 9:18 am

      I’ve been really curious about trying Biscoff for a while now. After this comment, I just bought some at Amazon!

    these look AH-mazing! now i just have to figure out how to turn them into a gluten free version!

    • Kirbie replied: — January 17th, 2012 @ 10:55 am

      Ah, sorry I can’t help you there. I’m not very good with gluten free baking.

    can cookie cutters be used for some nutella cookie recipe because i would love to give different shapes to them for the kids….usually cookie cutters cant be used with soft dough recipies.

    • Kirbie replied: — September 9th, 2012 @ 11:48 pm

      I’m actually not sure. I’ve never tried to roll out this dough so I don’t know if it rolls out well. If you do try it and it works, please let me know!
