Hey! You childish people! Thats Nutella! And it’s tasty!
Yes the above cookies do look like a little elf dropped a stylish bowel movement on them, however once they have been refrigerated, and the nutella gets cold, they enter into an amazing taste haven. The cookie itself aren’t all that sweet, they have a distinct coffee taste to them, to the close to bitter end. But once you add the nutella center, they are perfectly balanced.
Sadly they did not make my list for Christmas Cookies because of the messiness of the nutella. But they are super duper tasty.
So the sad part about this recipe, is that for those who cannot eat milk, Nutella has milk ingredients in it, so this is not a milk-free recipe. Speaking of which, still looking for a milk-free alternate… Anyways still tasty tiny cookies.
Maybe these are the cookies to leave for santa? I mean that guy must be getting sick of royal icing and M&M’s.
I’m on the amazing cookie quest to see which cookies will be present during the holidays, and will be present during co-worker food eatin’ time. So far I have my favorites, however I am looking for a few new entries to spice some things up. The most puzzling spot to fill is the biscotti position. I want something that isn’t too nutty and that isn’t just fruit, which seems to be a majority of the biscotti population. So…. I’m working on it.
About these cookies, I was super amazed that there are no eggs in this recipe! And that it also seems a little healthier with the maple syrup and almond milk. So yay official no dairy recipe!
