I don’t know if you’ve realized this yet, but I have an affinity for Nutella. I’ve created Nutella marshmallows out of sheer craving, and I post pictures of any Nutella-based treats I find onto my Instagram page. I have a problem, you guys. When I decided that we needed a new cookie to leave for
Daddy Santa, Nutella immediately entered my mind. Once I looked in the fridge and saw some leftover ricotta cheese chilling in the back, the light bulb over my head exploded. Nutella Ricotta Cookies were now on the menu.
This recipe for Nutella ricotta cookies is really easy and even with the addition of Nutella, it’s not overly sweet. If you love soft, cake-like cookies, these are for you. If you love chocolate cookies without having actual chocolate chips in them, then these cookies are definitely for you. Plus, I’m sure Santa will enjoy them.
Nutella Ricotta Cookies
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in egg, Nutella, vanilla and ricotta cheese.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda; blend into ricotta mixture.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes; the cookies will look soft and spongy once baked completely.
