Nutella Cookies

A slight fib, I actually used Cadbury’s chocolate spread but they’re pretty much the same thing. I got this fantastic recipe from a book I read a few years ago called ‘Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe’ by Jenny Colgan it’s a great inspiring and motivating book that I would recommend if you love baking and maybe like the idea of starting your own business one day.

Makes 12

Ingredients
225g self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
100g butter
100g caster sugar
½ tsp bicarbonate soda (dissolved in 1 tsp of hot water)
2 tbsp golden syrup
6 tsp nutella

Method

1. Set the oven to gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Rub in the butter, sugar, bicarb and Nutella to form a dough.

3. Next roll into small balls and place on the tray, pressing down in the centre with your thumb.

4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, they will still be soft but take them out to cool down.


These cookies are really nice, quite sweet because of the sugar and chocolate but also chewy. The Nutella Cookies are a great after dinner snack for children!!
