Double Nutella Cookies

I just wanted a quick and easy cookie. My brother was eating Nutella spread on whole wheat bread and I thought I remembered a 3 ingredient cookie made with Nutella. I got on the internet and found it and whipped it up. This just might be the easiest cookie recipe I have ever tried.

Double Nutella Cookies
1 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
extra-large egg
1 cup
self-rising cake flour, plus additional for dusting (see note below)
1.Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Mix 1/2 cup Nutella and the egg with an electric mixer until well combined. Slowly add 1 cup of flour until a wet dough is formed. Transfer the dough to a flour-dusted board.
3. Knead gently, adding a bit more flour if necessary; dough will be sticky. Roll dough into 18 balls, flouring your hands as needed to make rolling easier. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet, several inches apart.
4. Bake 12 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Split cookies in half horizontally using a sharp, serrated knife . Spread bottom with 1 teaspoon Nutella, replace top and press firmly. Let cool completely. Store in a tightly covered tin.
note I didn't have self-rising cake flour, so I mixed 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt with regular cake flour before adding it.

Oh my goodness! These look so absolutely tempting I just can't stand it.

It doesn't get much easier either. I know they must be all gone. Could you save me some next time? Ah gee, I think I'll make them myself.

Thanks for sharing...
