Tips on how to make these soft and chewy nutella cookies from scratch?

  • To make these yummy cookies, sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a separate bowl and give it a good stir before adding them into the butter. This helps the baking powder and salt to spread evenly in the dough.
  • Beat the sifted dry ingredients to the butter only until the dough forms.
  • The cookie dough might look very soft but that’s how it is supposed to be.
  • To check if the dough is just right, take some dough with your fingers and pinch them together. The dough should not stick to your fingers. That’s how you know it’s in the right consistency.
  • When rolling the dough using a rolling pin, be gentle. It doesn’t have to be in perfect shape.

  • Use only softened nutella. Before spreading the Nutella to the dough, make sure it is not hard. If the nutella was in the fridge leave it out on the counter until they soften.
  • Don’t worry if it is messy while cutting the log of cookie dough or while you roll them into balls or when you flatten them. They make the tastiest messy cookies!
  • Join the first and last piece of the log to form one cookie ball. So this ensures all the cookies are of the same size and they are cooked consistently.
  • When flattening the cookie balls be gentle. When pressed too hard they tend to crack on the sides.

How to shape cookies with nutella filling the messy way?

To shape the cookie dough, dust the surface with a little bit of flour and place the cookie dough on it. Then using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a round or rectangle. Both shapes work. Then make it into a log like it is done for a cinnamon roll.

Now with a sharp knife, cut the log into ½ inch thickness. Then take each piece of the log and gently roll them using your palms to make balls.

Next, slightly press the cookie balls to make circular discs. Don’t press them too hard or they might crack on the sides. Arrange them on the baking tray and chill.

Below picture is when I sliced and baked these cookies without the mess but somehow preferred the messy version of it.

How to double this easy recipe for nutella cookies?

These nutella cookies are easy to double like any other cookie recipe. But when you double this recipe and the dough is ready to be rolled, divide the dough into half without fail. Do the rolling process separately for each batch. I find that this helps to evenly spread the nutella and cinnamon between each cookie.

Storage tips for the best nutella filled cookies:

These delicious cookies stay fresh when stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

To freeze the cookies before baking, arrange them on a baking tray and freeze until they are hard. Then remove them from the tray and wrap each cookie disc with cling film and store them together in a zip lock bag in the freezer. When you feel like having them, remove the plastic wrap and bake these delicious cookies by just adding an extra 5 minutes to your baking time.

Now like rolling a cinnamon roll, using a scarper, Start rolling the dough from your side towards the opposite side to make a log.
