Nutella cookies

Nutella Nutella Nutella...

The wonderful taste of Nutella
Chocolate - hazelnut yummy spread
It's great alone or on toasts and crepes 
A friend of mine just recently discovered the wonders of Nutella.  It's her birthday tomorrow so I want to bake some Nutella goodies for her.  Cookies would be great! 

Nutella cookies
adopted from allrecipes
(20 servings ~ 90 calories each)


1 cup reduced fat graham cracker crumbs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Nutella spread

1) Preheat oven to 350 F
2) Prepare graham crackers crumbs. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; add the egg, vanilla, and Nutella spread and mix by a spoon until well blended. Form the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart (they spread a lot due to the fact that Nutella has a lot of oil in it. So make sure you put them at least 2 inches apart or they would stick together like mine did).             

3) Bake in the preheated oven until crispy on the outside, 8 to 10 minutes.  Allow to rest on cookie sheet a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool.
Happy birthday kiddo Liz!
