If you love Nutella (who doesn't?!) then you are in for a treat with these Nutella Stuffed Cookies! They are delicious soft nutty chocolate cookies with pure Nutella running through the middle. So damn good! You'll also only need 3 ingredients to make them - flour, eggs and Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread). You don't need to add extra sugar or fat because Nutella has those elements within in.
How to make Nutella Stuffed Cookies
First mix together egg and Nutella until smooth.
Add plain flour and mix until all of the white of the flour is gone and a smooth dough forms. Split the dough in half and then split each half into 10 small pieces (so you'll have 20 pieces total) roll 10 of them between your palms, then flatten them. Put on lined baking trays, and add a spoonful of Nutella in the middle.
With the remaining dough pieces, make another disc of cookie dough and place it on top of the spoonful of Nutella. Then press down the edges with your fingertips to seal it in. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
How long do the cookies last and can they be frozen?
The cookies, once fully cool, should be stored in an airgtight container for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen, again in a airtight container or a freezer bag, for up to 3 months.

One word: yum.
You summed it up perfectly!

That sounds so good!! They also do a chocolate orange spread in Tesco and a caramel one! Oh the possibilities...!
Yum! These look ginormous, just the way I like them 🙂
They are quite big, but the you could easily make them bigger if you wanted!!

Ooo, I'm so glad I've found this blog and this post in particular! I've seen these biscuits on pinterest but was so sceptical about them so it's fantastic to see a step by step post showing how they work =)
Hi Laura, thanks for your comments 🙂 I'm glad you've found it helpful and I hope you enjoy making these cookies!
Hello again! Would you mind if I used this recipe on my own blog? I'll link back to you of course. These were so nice to make and even better to eat that I wanted to write about them =)
Of course! I look forward to seeing the post! 🙂
I’ve made two batches of these as they are so yummy. So quick and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe. My new favourite cookies!
Thanks so much Hayley! I'm so glad you enjoyed them!
So quick and easy. Will double the recipe next time
Thank you Susan!
Hi! These look absolutely amazing! Like all your recipes!
If I was to freeze these, at what point would do that? After sealing the Nutella in with the top cookie dough?
Hi Jane, thank you so much! I freeze them after they are baked and fully cooled 🙂
Brilliant thank you! I just been out to stock up my baking cupboard! Nutella cookies coming soon!
If any actually end up frozen (unlikely...😏) how long back in the oven before serving?
Thank you again!
I've not baked them from frozen, I'm usually too desperate for a cookie and I always put it in the microwave! 😀 But I reckon check after 5 minutes in the oven and then maybe a couple extra minutes if needed?
Just tried this recipe, and yum yum yum!! Big thumbs up from me and my hubby. So simple too!
I added a raspberry to a couple just to try out and can recommend mixing that in too!
So good, thank you! Will be baking these for up coming family visit!
