It’s getting cold outside – and cozy inside! Time for a hot cup of tea/coffee/chocolate/milk (everything’s a good choice, right?) and something sweet to indulge yourself with while watching your favorite DVDs – time for a cookie! Done in a total of about 20 minutes and perfect just for yourself (but don’t forget: sharing is caring – but you can also double the ingredients and create a pizza-sized huge cookie for two). I transformed a recipe from → Cooking Classy, actually for one big chocolate chip cookie – my version makes a big cookie filled with nutella, crunchy on the edge, soft in the middle. And if you love nutella, you can put a small cup with it into the still hot oven, melt it a bit and drip it over your cookie. ;) Well, I’m fat AND a diabetic (type 1, though – so no judging here!) – but we’re all allowed to enjoy some little sins from time to time, and what’s winter and holiday season without some cookie fun? ;) So here goes my recipe for a delicious single nutella cookie. Bon appetit!
• 2 tbsp salted butter
• 3 tbsp packed light-brown sugar
• 1 pinch of salt
• 1 tbsp whisked egg
• ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
• ⅛ tsp baking soda
• 1 tbsp nutella
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the butter in a microwavable mixing bowl. Heat in the microwave until nearly melted (not completely melted and not too hot, the egg could get cooked and that would be very bad) and stir to fully melt.
Add brown sugar, salt, egg, flour and baking soda to the melted butter and stir with a spoon until everything’s well combined for about half a minute.
Then put the dough in your hands, flatten it and put the nutella in the middle, form a ball (the nutella should stay in the middle of the ball so it is spread evenly in the middle of the cookie). Now shape it into a 0.2-inch-thick disk on parchment paper and bake it for about 15 minutes until the cookie is golden.
You can now eat it warm or let it cool – or you can add more nutella, or some ice cream, or powdered sugar, or… so many options! ;)
