Nutella Stuffed Sugar Cookies Recipe

Amanda Powell | A Cookie Named Desire

Super soft sugar cookies filled with a hidden pool of Nutella. There is nothing more fun than baking up a batch of Nutella-stuffed sugar cookies and sharing with everyone.

There is nothing I love more than baking stuffed cookies. It’s something I am kind of known for making.

My s’mores stuffed cookies and my red velvet nutella stuffed cookies are probably my most popular.

I’ve actually thought about creating a cookbook with nothing but stuffed cookies. I am sure I will start it one day soon.

Nutella-stuffed cookies are one of my favorites to make because they are one of the easier to put together. These Nutella-stuffed sugar cookies being probably the easiest of them all.

Seriously, my sister and I baked up a huge batch of these cookies together this weekend and got through them in just a few minutes.

The only thing that makes them a little tricky to bake is that the Nutella thaws quickly when you freeze it for stuffing.

My fix is to freeze them in small amounts on dessert plates topped with parchment paper so I can easily assemble the cookies in small batches to keep the Nutella from thawing too much.

The dough for the sugar cookies themselves doesn’t require any chilling either. You can roll and bake right away without any issues.

You can put them in the refrigerator though… and the freezer as well. They will just need a few extra minutes in the oven.

I prefer to keep my stuffing to just a teaspoon, but you can easily add as much as half a tablespoon in your cookies.

Just remember to be sure the frozen Nutella is completely covered by the cookie dough to prevent any of it seeping out of your cookies and creating a huge mess.

In my opinion, these cookies are best fresh out the oven, but they will stay fresh for up to a week in an airtight container.
