I love Pinterest. I find myself spending hours pinning cute clothes, travel destinations, and most importantly, food. I have yet to try to make anything I’ve pinned, so I thought I’d take a chance and make these cookies. They seemed simple enough, and who doesn’t love Nutella?
According to Pinterest, this is how the cookies were supposed to look:
This is how mine turned out:
Regardless of how they looked, they were still delicious. I think my mini-muffin tin was too mini. Or maybe I didn’t press into the cookies hard enough with the right object. Maybe I let my cookies cook for too long (I don’t like mushy cookies…). I’ll try it again and maybe I’ll be successful next time…
Nutella Cookie Cups *recipe from here
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 15 minutes
- 1 cup butter (softened)
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Slowly add in flour, salt and baking soda until smooth. Roll dough into 1.5 inch balls. Put them into a muffin tin (grease if to pan is not non-stick) for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
Let the cookies sit for about two minutes, and then taking a shot glass or a pepper grinder and make little wells for the Nutella.
Top with Nutella. It’s up to you how much you want to put in. I like Nutella, so I put more than the prescribed 1tbsp. They may not have been as pretty as the pinterest photo, but they were still quite tasty! I think I might try them with sugar cookies next time…
*Also – Apologies for the poor quality of the photos. I have no excuse.
