Nutella Sugar Cookies

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.

  1. 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.

    • 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!

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

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

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

  11. Yet another Kirbie recipe to clip! I don’t know which one to try first! =)

  12. Wow these look great!
