I am totally guilty of boredom eating. I reach for a snack constantly while we’re at home as a way to pass some of the time. This week I decided to drag out the snacking process a little and do a bit of baking. I might as well spend a little time making something before I eat it!

We have had a big tub of Nutella in the cupboard for quite a while. If I’m honest it’s not something that either JHogg or I are a bit fan of, but I thought it would be quite nice to try out some salted Nutella cookies. Turns out they were quite a hit!

This recipe makes around 36 cookies. I baked 12 of them, then split the remaining dough in 2 and popped it in the freezer. It will keep in there for around 3 months, meaning you can grab some dough and quickly bake it whenever you want fresh cookies!

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C, line a couple of baking trays with grease proof paper. I use a reusable baking sheet.
  2. Cream together the butter and the sugar. I prefer to make cookies by hand, but if you prefer you can use a mixer to do it.
  3. Mix the egg in until it is fully combined. Add the salt.
  4. Add the flour bit and bit and combine it until a dough is formed. If it is not all absorbed then a small splash of milk can be used.
  5. Add the Nutella and marble it through the dough.
  6. Split the dough into small balls and place them on the baking trays. Make sure there is plenty space between them as the cookies will spread as they bake.
  7. Sprinkle them with some more sea salt, and then bake for 12 minutes.
  8. The cookie will still be very soft when the time is up, but rest assured they are cooked! Slide them on to a wire rack to cool.
