Nutella Oatmeal Thins

16 Mar

World Nutella Day passed recently and I had to a craving for nutella, thus the birth of these cookies. Really now, where do you go wrong with Nutella sandwiched by two Nutella cookies? You don’t.

Nutella Oatmeal Thins
Yields: About 24

Original recipe can be found at Baking Bites

1 cup + 2 tbsn. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter, room temp
6 -7 tbsn. Nutella
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup of quick cooking oats
 
Preheat to 350 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl cream the butter, nutella, and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and egg yolk, then the vanilla. Gradually blend in the flour mixture and the oats, slowly. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter onto the baking sheet, at least 2.5 inches apart to allow them to expand. Bake for 10 minutes, and let cool completely. Enjoy!

Comments: These cookies are super-easy to make. Mix, mix, bake, BAM—delicious. I love that the cookies don’t obviously taste like nutella and that they are very thin, but not crunchy. Since Michelle at Une-deux Senses posted that she made sandwich cookies, I tried it out too. Amongst my coworkers, seems like some people like plain and some people liked the sandwiches, so it’s up to you which you make.
