Five Ingredient Nutella–Sea Salt Cookie Recipe!

/ Thursday, January 24, 2013

You know those super-easy peanut butter cookie recipes with just 4 or 5 ingredients? They're incredibly tasty and only require a few staples, usually peanut butter, sugar and an egg! Last night a thought popped into my head, "Do you think the same 1-to-1 ratio would work with Nutella?" So I decided to test it out. Guess what? It works! The cookies come out thin and crispy (not super Nutella-y but they have a deep chocolaty flavor), plus they look quite chic. If I have time tonight, I'd like to try turning them into sandwich cookies—the crisp, delicate texture would work nicely with a creamy filling, maybe dulce de leche buttercream! Even plain, though, these cookies are a quick-fix for a cookie-craving or last minute guests. I hope you enjoy :)

MAKES: about 2 dozen 

1 cup Nutella
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Flaked sea salt, for sprinkling

1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Beat the Nutella, sugar, egg and vanilla in a bowl with a mixer on medium speed until combined.
2. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and arranged on 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake 10 min. or until set. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool slightly, then transfer to wire racks and cool completely. 

*Note: These are gluten-free—score!
