Nutella Swivel Cookies

What’s better than cookies and Nutella?

When I was a child I used to take a few shortbread cookies, cover them with a good, thick layer of Nutella and eat them as an afternoon snacks while I was making my homework. I must admit I have kept doing this until a few years ago, when people started looking at me like I was some kind of totally crazy woman…so I decided to incorporate Nutella into my cookies!

I brought these cookies to my company family day last weekend and everyone loved them! Give this a try and let me know what you think!


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar (150 g)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (165 g)
  • 2  cups flour  ( 220 g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 or 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

In a bowl of your electric mixer combine the sugars and butter. Beat at slow speed until creamy


Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition


In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredient to the butter/egg mixture together with 2 tbsp of vegetable oil and mix until combined. Do not over-mix the batter at this stage


Now drop a few tsp of Nutella into the batter



and gently scoop it out onto your baking tray lined with parchment paper


Bake at 180 C for about 12 min. Let the cookies cool down on a wire rack before storing them into an air-tight container
