Crazy About Nutella Cookies

Tidings humans!

Right, so tomorrow is going to be a BIG day for me... Because I will start college! It is part time, and it is going to be ace! The only way I can describe it is - first day of school, but all over again, and this time - I am focusing on one particular subject... Floristry!

OK, so I might have bought a new pencil case... Yes... Because I remember every year roundabout the time we had one or two weeks left of the Summer holidays, we'd get new pencil cases and prepare for our return! I am really looking forward to getting the chance to be more creative again, meeting new people - doing something that I waaaaant to do!

BUT, that is not to say I haven't been cooking...

Last weekend, I made these for my boyfriend and I, because I had been working on the Saturday and the Sunday was the only part of the weekend we really got to enjoy! So up I got in the morning, and baked the cookies I did.

These are divine, and was gone by sunset!

Soft Nutella Cookies
(Makes about 10)

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup nutella
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 cup chocolate chips (milk chocolate for this recipe)

- Start by pre-heating the oven to 200C.

- Now, cream the butter and sugar until soft, and then add the vanilla, egg and nutella.

- In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients, and then stir evenly out into the nutella batter until you have a sticky dough. Swirl through the chocolate chips, and stir until combined.

- Place baking paper on a tray, and use two tablespoons to shape rounds of cookie dough. The cookies will melt out a little bit, so don't put more than six cookies on each tray.

- Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 10 minutes until cooked through, but still soft. Serve will a glass of (almond) milk, and tuck in!

What is your absolute favourite cookie recipe?

This evening after work (I finished late, bleurgh) I made soup, then some breakfast cookies, and enjoyed a little glass of red. Perfect end to a work week before getting my back pack on tomorrow! Have you been up to much this week?

PS there is my new pencil case, the one with the tiger! Remember those ones with a zip that was pre-filled? Well this is like that one, except I got to fill it with my own stationary, and my floristry scissors fit in it as well!

  1. Aahh! Your cookies look amazing! I absolutely love this recipe :)
    Also, SUPER cute pencil case! I was thinking about buying a new pencil case for my new job (first day of school for me too!) but then I just put all my stationary into a box. I am a little boring that way.
    Hope you are having an amazing week!!

    Also, on a side note, I finally brought my grandmother's recipe book over to Toronto from where they were in Vancouver, and I was wondering if I could get your help in translating them? When I post them to my blog, I will obviously link back to you as my translator :). They are in Danish, and her writing may be a little hard to read, but I was wondering if you could give it a try. I would be so grateful!!

    1. Aww thanks! The cookies were amaaaazing - and my boyfriend also loved them :) The pencil case I adore, and because I am doing floristry, I can store things like scissors and other stuff there until I get a wee toolbox! I always remember those few weeks before going back to school and buying new stuff <3

      I would love to translate it yeh! If you wanna scan them over to then I shall be of assistance :)

  2. Så utrolig kult at du starter på skole igjen. Så bildene på fb, dette blir gøy for deg!
